IC 2944, also known as the Running Chicken Nebula or the Lambda Centauri Nebula,
is an open cluster with an associated emission nebula found in the constellation Centaurus, near the star Lambda Centauri.
We also can see some dark clouds known as Thackerays Globules, silhouetted against nearby,
bright stars. Little is known about the globules, except that they are generally associated with areas of star formation.
