Comments: vdB 141 is reflection nebula number 141 in Sidney van den Bergh's Catalog of Reflection Nebulae, 1966. It is often referred to as the Ghost or Ghostly Nebula. In the cropped image below are seen two "ghosts" rising up out of the main nebula. The adjacent dark nebulae and dust appear not to be cataloged. The dust in the region appears to be being swept from "right to left". There is a lot of dust in this image.
