Kemble's Cascade is an asterism (a pattern created by unrelated stars) located in the constellation of Camelopardalis. It is an apparent straight line of more than 20 colourful 5th to 10th magnitude stars over a distance of approximately five moon diameters. It was named in honour of Father Lucian Kemble (1922–1999), a Franciscan friar and amateur astronomer who discovered it while sweeping the sky with a pair of 7x35 binoculars. He described it as "a beautiful cascade of faint stars tumbling from the northwest down to the open cluster NGC 1502".
