Abstract: Star formation in the Local spiral arm in the direction of the Galactic longitudes 132–158° is reviewed. Recent star-forming activity in this Milky Way direction is evidenced by the presence here of the Cam OB1 association and dense dust and molecular clouds containing Hα emission stars, young irregular variables and infrared stellar objects. The clouds of the Local arm concentrate in two layers at 150–300 pc and ∼900 pc from the Sun. The Perseus arm objects in this direction are at a distance of about 2 kpc.
