The light coming from this nebula is produced by it’s dust particles being hit by high energy UV radiation. This process is called photoluminescence.
Within LDN 1235’s border there are two reflection nebulae: vdB149 & vdB150 (van den Bergh catalog). The reflection Nebulae are respectively illuminated by the stars BD+72 1018 and HD 210806, both of spectral type B8IV.
