Details: NGC 5367 and Barnard 146E are an interesting mixture of bright and dark nebulosity in Centaurus. The brightest portion is the reflection nebula NGC 5367 surrounding a 9th magnitude star. A second fainter portion is visible in an 8" telescope, a little southeast of the brightest portion, surrounding a 10th magnitude double star. This would be an interesting region for a visual observer with a large telescope.
