|Star System:||NGC 1491 Sector EB-X c1-3|

The southernmost nebula, at the edge of the Formidine Rift.
The NGC 1491 nebula is the southernmost one in the galaxy, and close to the northern edge of the Formidine Rift region. It's in a place that's somewhat sparse in stars, as it's near the edge of an area between the two galactic arms. Because of this, and also because the nebula is relatively small, there aren't many stars to be found neither inside nor around it. Still, there are enough to get some nice views.
In addition, the center star (BD +50 °886) can serve as a guiding light from many systems away: there are no other class O stars like this for thousands of light-years.
