The constellation Centaurus hosts a curious and not too often imaged reflection nebula, NGC 5367. It glows with wispy blue light reminiscent of the Pleiades and has abundant intergalactic dust adding drama to this young stellar birthplace. ESO325-42 is a distant background spiral galaxy towards the lower left side of this image.
