The Pipe Nebula

Portrayed in this image is a picturesque dust lane obscuring some of the Milky Way stars, usually referred to as the Pipe Nebula due to its curious shape. Also known under the more technical names Barnard 59, Barnard 65-67, and Barnard 78, this dark spot is visible to the naked eye in the constellation of Ophiuchus, the Snake Holder.
