How about the star nebula?

At first I thought it should be called the cocoon nebula, but I believe that name is taken. The inside reminds me of what would be on the inside of a cocoon. Perhaps we could call it the pupa nebula, larvae nebula or something similar. Maybe the grub nebula.

I suggest NGC 7027 should be ‘Moomintroll Nebula’ or just the ‘Moomin Nebula’ after Tove Jansen’s illustrations ? I remember a fluffy cloud picture ...

And also their association with the night sky generally ..

and especially comets

So when I saw this image,
It immediately transformed into

except with far better drawing skills !!

I just hope I’m not alone in seeing it....

Please forgive this 61 yr old total noob. No matter what I do I can’t get my pics on google drive to display using Preview. Despite some IT skills, but [img2] tag showed a thumbnail once !

Usually, the URL needs to end in .jpg (or .gif, or .png) to display an image inline. I removed the img2 tags from the non-image urls, which, though they show an image, are actually a web page with an image inside, not a direct link to an image. This allowed the one image to show up. The rest will have to be clickable urls, unfortunately.

Your suggestion is very cute. :)
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

The Cerebrum Nebula! Because it looks like a human brain.
