NGC 1333 is a reflection nebula located in the constellation Perseus. It belongs to the Perseus molecular cloud. In 2011 researchers reported finding 30 to 40 brown dwarf objects in the cloud and in the Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex. The energy from the nearby stars is insufficient to ionize the gas of the nebula to create an emission nebula, but is enough to give sufficientscattering to make the dust visible.
