VdB 19 (other catalogue numbers: IC 348, IC 1985, DG 23, Ced 20, LBN 758, Magakian 49, Bernes 67),or Flying Ghost Nebula is a reflection nebula which lies a few arcminutes from the 3.8 mag. star Omicron Persei. Its double IC number is due to the fact that Dreyer put this nebula into the first IC apparently without seeing Safford's footnote: "A loose cluster with nebula".
