VdB 141, the Ghost Nebula (also Sh2-136) is a reflection nebula located in the constellation Cepheus near the cluster NGC 7023. This is a wider crop showing the more extended region of nebulosity. The Ghost nebula is considered a globule (cataloged CB230) and is over 2 light-years across. There are several stars embedded, whose emissions make the nebula shine in brownish colour.
