LDN 1082 aka Barnard 150, also known as Seahorse Nebula, is a dark molecular cloud of dust in Cepheus constellation, so thick, that it absorbs all the light that comes from the stars behind it.
This molecular cloud is part of our Milky Way galaxy, one of the 182 objects cataloged by astronomer Edward E. Barnard and it lies at about 1200 Light Years away.
This nebula is about 1 degree in size or the width of two Moons.
