All Alone in the Dark

Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day shows a dark nebula (the Dark Doodad, amusingly) in the southern constellation of Musca ("The Fly", I love names of constellations in the southern hemisphere). Nearby is globular cluster NGC 4372.

Yet another example of how spectacular the southern hemisphere skies are compared to mine!
