NGC 5367 and CG12

This is a rather complex pair of objects in the constellation Centaurus. The blue reflection nebula is NGC 5367. While the nebula is quite pretty, the more interesting object, for me and for the professional astronomy community, is the brownish cloud that envelopes and slightly obscures NGC 5367. This is the cometary globule CG12, which extends somewhat further off the left side of this image. Cometary globules get their name from their appearance, which vaguely resembles a rather poorly formed
