V 1331 Cyg

Variable star V1331 Cyg in the upper left highlights this interesting area, which sits in a dense Cygnus starfield. It is a young mag 12 star which is partly encircled by a an unusual yellow reflection nebulae, an arc of dust irradiated by the star that created it. It sits at the tip of a finger of dark nebula, LDN 981. It is 2600 light years distant. The prominent blue star is Mag 5 HIP 103530 which appears to have some associated reflection as well.
