Description

NGC 5367 is a reflection nebula associated with the cometary globule CG12.

CG12 was dicovered in 1976 on an ESO/SRC Sky Survey plate taken with the UK Schmidt telescope. In contrast to most other CGs, CG12 exists at a place in the Milky way far away from the galactic disk - it has a galactic latitude of more than 21°. The two bluish stars responsible for the light reflected by the nebula are the double star h4636 (spectral type B4 and B7).
