Embryo Nebula (NGC 1333) in Perseus
NGC 1333 a beautiful reflection nebula, dominated by bluish hues characteristic of starlight reflected by interstellar dust. It lies at the edge of the Perseus molecular cloud complex at a distance of about 1000 light-years and is an active star-forming region. Withing the dense clouds, many red Herbig-Haro objects are visable which indicates ongoing star forming activity. The dark nebula to the lower left of the image is Barnard 205.
