A nice looking reflection nebula nestled in a large area of dark dust and gas.
The orange and yellow areas directly below the blue reflection nebula are known to be areas where new stars are in the process of formation.
Also note the small yellow reflection nebula to the upper right and the small blue reflection nebula to the lower right.
