NGC 1333 taken on November 12th and 13th 2015 from my Creedmoor site is located in the constellation Perseus and is a beautiful example of a reflection nebula embeded with an open star cluster. NGC 1333 is first discovered by Eduard Schonfeld in 1855 and it is a bright reflection nebula in the western portion of the Perseus molecular cloud. The star BD +30 549 illuminates NGC 1333 and was found to be a B8 spectral type. Today, the term NGC 1333 is used to denote the molecular cloud and young stellar cluster associated with the optical reflection nebula. NGC 1333 is the currently most active region of star formation in the Perseus molecular cloud.
