NGC 5367 is a reflection nebula in the southern constellation Centaurus.

With another reflection nebula (GN 13.54.9) it is embedded in the cometary globule CG 12. Cometary globules are interstellar clouds with comet-like morphology, consisting of compact, dusty, and opaque heads and long, faintly luminous tails.
