NGC 7129 is a star-forming region and reflection nebula in the constellation of Cepheus. It is about 3000 light years away from the Earth. The stars in this nebula are very young, only about a million years old. The red blobs above and below the nebula are Herbig Haro objects, which are the result of jets of gas streaming away from young stars in the nebula.
