Honestly I, too, thought it was a butt. I'm 21.

In all seriousness, it kinda looks like when two atoms either merge or split apart. I'll call it the "Fission Nebula".

My nephew suggested "The Flopping Penguin Nebula". Also "The Fat Seagull Nebula". If that's too PC incorrect, "The Fluffy Seagull Nebula" would work.

I disagree with everyone. It's built like a Pillow Pet. It should be called the Pillow Pet Nebula :P ;) Another option could be the Pizza Roll Nebula or Blossoming Flower Nebula. Also a good name would be Cotton Candy Nebula. If you are interested in more names we recommend Jiggly Puff Nebula.

Another one from me is "The Puffin Nebula". If you turn the picture upside down, you can see the wings, tail, beak, and even the puffin's eye.

Okay, my first response seems to have been deleted. Sorry about that. But it still looks like a p**** hat to me. :-/

I would suggest the Trump Nebula, because it's a gas bag, it's a hot mess, and it looks like an ass.

I agree with the throwing star association (the Japanese word for it sounds better) It's the first thing I thought of looking at the image

My recommended name is an adaptation of the pillow suggestion. How about call it the ZEPNOS nebula? I've no earthly accomplishments to be Remember me by when I'm gone and I would like this. It's after the Greek God of slumber!
