Obscured Field of Stars, variant

Edited European Southern Observatory image of the dark nebula Barnard 59 set nicely in a field of stars. Inverted grayscale variant.

Original caption: This picture shows Barnard 59, part of a vast dark cloud of interstellar dust called the Pipe Nebula. This new and very detailed image of what is known as a dark nebula was captured by the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory. This image is so large that it is strongly recommended to use the zoomable version to appreciate it fully.
