The Horsehead Nebula is Rotating (http://kencroswell.com/HorseheadNebulaIsRotating.html)


The Horsehead Nebula in Orion is rotating, say radio astronomers in France, Holland, and Germany. The centrifugal force the rotation has induced may account for the nebula's distinctive shape.

From link above:
most of the horse's neck shares the same spin: the left (northern) side is approaching and the right (southern) side is receding (serene reflection : Inch by inch the apocalyptic figure turns to face me....)

Thanks for the kewl vision.
