The Great Rift is the name given to the collection of dark nebulae (also called absorption nebulae) located between the Sol System and the Sagittarius Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy at a distance of about 300 light years. This collection of separate dust clouds is a highly visible feature in the otherwise bright view of the galactic disk as seen from Sol. Astronomers estimate they contain about 1 million solar masses of plasma and dust.

The individual members of The Great Rift are:

  • Coalsack and Coalsack Dark Region
  • Chamaeleon Nebula
  • Lupus and Lupus B Dark Region
  • Rho Ophiuchi Nebula
  • Ophiuchus Dark Region
  • Ophiuchus Dark Region B
  • Ophiuchus Dark Region C
  • Snake Nebula
  • Scorpius Dark Region
  • Pipe Nebula, as "Bowl" and "Stem"
  • Corona Australis Dark Region
  • B92 Nebula
  • B133 Nebula
  • Aquila Dark Region Nebula
