This is an often overlooked colorful field of our galaxy close to the regon of the Cone Nebula and the Rosette Nebula. On display are examples of red emission nebula, blue reflection nebula and dark nebula. A curved section of dark nebulosity (LDN1606 & LDN1607), connects the largest blue area of nebulosity, (IC 447) with the blueish IC 446.
