The Running Man Nebula is a reflection nebula 1/2 degree northeast of the Orion Nebula.
 This object was named 'The Running Man Nebula' by Texas Astronomical Society member Jason Ware. Approximately
20 years ago his downstairs neighbor looked at the object and said it looked like a running man.
It was tough to process this picture due to intense light pollution at my observing location but I think the 'Running Man' came out pretty well.
