Short description:

The molecular cloud LBN 126 in the constellation Eagle

Our image shows the molecular cloud LBN 126 is located northeast of the bright star gamma Aql in the constellation Eagle. The darker parts of the nebula were already catalogued by Edward Emerson Barnard as B 340. On his original photographic plates, the entire nebular region is only visible as a small dark spot. In the northern part of the molecular cloud, some stars, still hidden behind dense dust, illuminate their surroundings and create the brighter nebular part GN 19.46.4.
