NGC 1491 (also designated SH2-206 and LBN 704) is a bright pinkish emission nebula and HII region, located on the edge of a vast cloud region of neutral gas, about 10,700 light-years away in the Formidine Rift.

The blue 11.22 magnitude star, BD +50 ° 886, is illuminating the nebula while its strong stellar wind is “blowing” a bubble in the gas that immediately surrounds it. The intense radiation from the star is also eroding the gas clouds surrounding it.

The entire nebula is quite irregular with a subtle bite cut out of the nebulosity from the east side that creates a darker hollow, and a high surface brightness region preceding the star. A faint, elongated haze extends from this patch to the northeast past the star giving an elongated appearance.
