Vulpecula OB1 is an OB association in which a batch of massive stars are being born. It was first identified by W. W. Morgan et al. (1953).[5] The association is located in the Orion Arm about 7,500[2] Light-years away from the Sun. Nebulae that are contained in this association include NGC 6820 and NGC 6823,[5] plus Sharpless 2-88.[2]
