VdB 35 and VdB 37

This part of the sky, situated in the constellation of Orion, about 7° northwards from Bellatrix (γ Ori) is rarely imaged. In fact at the moment of the publishing of this image (January 11th 2013) I couldn’t find any other image of this region. It includes two Van der Berg objects: the bluish VdB 35 (lower left) and the yellowish VdB 37 (upper right). Both are reflection nebulae. This image was taken remotely from the remote controlled IRIDA Observatory .
