Please compare the same image taken by ESO IC 2944, nicknamed the Running Chicken Nebula .

Esta nova imagem mostra a Running Chicken Nebula, uma nuvem de gás e estrelas recém-nascidas que fica a cerca de 6500 anos-luz de distância, na constelação de Centaurus (O Centauro). Oficialmente chamado IC 2944, ou Nebulosa Lambda Centauri, o seu estranho apelido vem da forma de pássaro de sua região mais brilhante. A própria estrela Lambda Centauri fica fora do campo de visão.

***************

This new image shows the Running Chicken Nebula, a cloud of gas and newborn stars that lies around 6500 light-years away from us in the constellation of Centaurus (The Centaur). Officially called IC 2944, or the Lambda Centauri Nebula, its strange nickname comes from the bird-like shape of its brightest region. The star Lambda Centauri itself lies just outside the field of view.
