This Nebula is also located in the Constellation of Orion and it is  very easy to see why it was called the Running Man Nebula.

This nebula is located just above M42.

The shape of the running man comes out pretty well in CCD pictures taken of the nebula, but it is not so apparent when looking at the nebula with less powerful telescopes.
