NGC 1514 (PK 165-15 1 and many others) is a large planetary nebula located approximately 1,500 light-years away in Taurus. The background of the image contains a lot of dust designated in the Planck Galactic Cold Clump (PGCC) catalog. A wider view showing a lot more dust can be seen in Gregg Ruppel’s recent image here -
