The Rho Ophiuchi Cloud is a giant molecular cloud composed partly of luminous ionised hydrogen and largely of dark dust. It owes its name to the star that dominates the region in which it is located, ρ Ophiuchi, located three degrees north of Antares in the constellation Ophiuchus., approximately 420 light years away.
