VdB (van den Berg) 152 is a blue reflection nebula that glows at the end of the dark nebula Barnard 175. It is about 1.400 light years away in the constellation Cepheus.
Near the edge of a large molecular cloud, interstellar dust in the region blocks most of the starlight behind it or scatter light from the embedded bright star giving parts of the nebula a characteristic blue color.
