NGC 6951 and some IFN

NGC 6951 (also catalogued as NGC 6952) is a barred spiral galaxy located in the constellation Cepheus. It is located at a distance of about 70 million light-years from Earth, which, given its apparent dimensions, means that NGC 6951 is about 100,000 light-years across. The galaxy is viewed through the Integrated Flux Nebula (IFN). The residual light of our galaxy illuminates this faint nebula of brownish molecular clouds.
