NGC 1977

The running man nebula. This object was named 'The Running Man Nebula' by Texas Astronomical Society member Jason Ware. Approximately 20 years ago his down stairs neighbor looked at the object and said it looked like a running man. He brought this up a TAS club meeting and the name stuck. Now widely accepted as 'The Running Man'.
