The Cave Nebula (also known as Sharpless 155) is a diffuse nebula in the constellation Cepheus. It is widely known as the Cave Nebula, though that name was applied earlier to Ced 201, a different nebula in Cepheus. The nebula is composed of ionized atomic hydrogen, also called an H II region. The nebula was first noted as a galactic emission nebula in 1959 in the extended second edition of the Sharpless catalogue. The name "Cave Nebula" was coined for this object by Patrick Moore, presumably derived from photographic images showing a curved arc of emission nebulosity corresponding to a cave mouth.
The nebula is 35 ly in diameter and of muted rust and green colors. The nebula is mostly empty of systems, with a few on the outer edges. Cave Nebula is close to the Elephant's Trunk nebula, and both can be observed together in the right locations.
