Reflection Nebula

Can I have some good suggestions to observe some Reflection Nebulae for GCSE Astronomy Coursework?

Hi Nachiket1 - When you go to

Hi Nachiket1 - When you go to the list of objects which are possible to observe in the GCSE astronomy section you can order the table by the 'type' of object. You should find that most 'reflection' nebulae sit in either the emission nebula or HII region sections - where a reflection nebula is where there is dust surrounding an object giving off light, which therefore reflects this light. By looking at the objects in this section (by pressing the 'i' or information button) you will be able to see which are reflecting light and therefore chose an object that way.

I hope this helps,
