Several small open star clusters are embedded in this nebula, which is why the object is commonly known as the star cluster IC 1848. The small emission nebula IC 1871 can be found at the top left of the head of the nebula, other small emission nebulae like IC 669 and IC 670 are slightly below. The complex east of it is its neighbour IC 1805, the so-called Heart Nebula. Both are often referred to together as the Heart Nebula and the Soul Nebula.
