IC 4592

About this object

IC 4592 is a reflection nebula located in the constellation Scorpius sometimes called the Blue Horsehead. To see the much larger horse head shape requires a much larger field of view. This image is a small portion of the much larger object and only covers the blue reflection area around the 4th magnitude star Jabbah.
