NGC 6914 is a reflection nebula located approximately 6,000 light-years away in the constellation of Cygnus, and was discovered by Édouard Stephan on August 29, 1881.
Ultraviolet radiation from stars in the Cygnus OB2 association ionize the nebula's hydrogen. 

It is immersed in a bath of HII emission from surrounding Hydrogen gas. 

I was struck by the beautiful contrast when seeing a superb APOD of it here: https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap220707.html

Beautiful.

Well done, Stuart! That’s a beautiful mix of emission, reflection, and dark nebulae.
