LBN 534, VDB 158

LBN 534 is an isolated and elongated molecular cloud in the constellation of Andromeda.. Either shock fronts from a supernova or ionization fronts from a massive star could have caused the shape of this cloud as well as the spatial distribution of young stars. The blue reflection nebula, vdB 158, is located at the southern end of the cloud. The nearby bright B9.5V star, HD 222142, illuminates VdB 158.
