In third place is Nebula NGC 2392, called 'Eskimo' because it looks like a face surrounded by a furry hood. The hood is, in fact, a ring of comet-shaped objects flying away from a dying star.  Eskimo is 5,000 light years from Earth.

Thanks to RK for this link. Beautiful, just beautiful. Go see them all.

I think the Neocons originated in the Ant Nebula, more specifically in the Piss Arm.
