NGC 6914 region in Cygnus
Blue diamonds embedded in clouds of H-Alpha
North of the star Sadr (γ Cygni) in the constellation Cygnus, at a distance of about 6,000 light-years, the reflection nebulae NGC 6914, VdB 131, and 132 are located, whose blue starlight is reflected by surrounding dust clouds. They are embedded in rich clouds of hydrogen, which are illuminated by young, hot stars, as well as some spectacular dark nebulae (including LDN 897, 899, and 900).
