GN 15.42.0 in the constellation Lupus (the Wolf)
This small reflection nebula is located in the middle of the dark cloud B 228 in the constellation Wolf. A single yellow star illuminates its neighboring dense molecular clouds. The diameter of the small nebula is about 1/4 lightyear. In cosmic scales "small" but our solar system would fit about 200x side by side into the reflection nebula.
