vDB 141 is a reflection nebula that shines by reflected light from nearby stars. The background stars shine through a general haze from the nebula causing them to appear brownish in color. This rendition has been color-calibrated, meaning it has roughly the correct color hues, although the color intensity has been significantly augmented.
