      Aside from those connected to its location (its
      coordinates,

      http://spider.ipac.caltech.edu/staff/latter/OH231description.html

      "R.A.: 7h 42m 16.8s (J2000)
      Dec.: -14deg 42min 52sec (J2000)"

      put it near M-46, at the top of the Ship Argo's Poop
      Deck where Argo would probably be flying its flag if
      it had one)

      I don't think there are any legends connected to the
      Rotten Egg Nebula. I believe it's a fairly recent
      astronomical discovery.
