As is often the case, the name of this nebula is more sensible when seen with the eye through a telescope than in a photograph that includes colors we can’t see when this faint. But if you imagine the shape of the famous video game character I think you might see how this object got its name.
The previous version of this target used only H-a and O-3 data. Adding S-2 (and quite a bit more exposure time) really added a lot of detail and color.
