  Spooky Ghost

Here is my submission for the astronomy picture of the day. You may put in on Asterisk if you want.
The light pollution forced me to reduce the exposure time for each lightframe down to 120 seconds.
The picture was taken in the nights between March, 23th and 27th in 2017. Vdb141 is a molecular cloud / reflection nebula in Cepheus, next to the iris nebula.
The region is full of dust and the ghost itself is about two lightyears away. Hope you like it
