In 1985 the astronomers Magnani, Blitz and Mundy (MBM) developed a catalogue of 56 high galactic latitude molecular clouds. These clouds of interstellar dust, also known as Integrated Flux Nebula (IFN) or Galactic Cirrus lies above the galactic plane and dimly reflect the starlight of our Milky Way.
MBM 54 is located in the constellation Pegasus.

Many other galaxies far beyond the Milky Way, like NGC 7497, are visible through the faint clouds of interstellar dust.
