LBN 777 is a faint reflection nebula in the constellation Taurus, about 5 degrees northeast of the Pleiades.
It is also nicknamed "Baby Eagle Nebula" or "Little Eagle Nebula" because of the suggestive shape that recalls the head of the bird of prey.
Inside the LBN 777 the Barnard obscure nebula 207 is also visible. The whole area is characterized by the presence of a diffuse nebulosity: it is the Molecular Cloud of Taurus, of which LBN 777 is part, located about 400 light years from Earth .
