Comments: This composite nebula has been referred to as the "little Cocoon" or "little Trifid" due to the similar combination of emission, reflection and dark nebulae that it contains. This image also shows the more fainter reflection nebulae in the region, as well as the more prominent dark nebulae. Here is the color data.
