Dark Nebula

Is there any Dark Nebula that can be observed? I need to observe it for my GCSE Astronomy Coursework.

Dark Nebulae are not really objects in their own right in astronomy - it merely means a nebula which has enough dust in it that it blocks out a lot of the light from stars within the nebula, or behind it. We have several examples of these in the NSO catalogue for instance, the Heart Nebula, NGC2064 and NGC2071.
