The Pipe Nebula (also known as Barnard 59, 65–67, and 78) is a dark nebula in the Ophiuchus constellation. It is a large dust lane that obscures the Milky Way star clouds behind it. Its shape resembles that of a smoking pipe. A small "S" shaped dark nebula called the Snake Nebula is visible at the mid upper part of the image.
