I think the sci-fi story, "The Mote in God`s Eye" by L. Niven and J. Pournell featured the coal sack nebula as the location for the action to take place. In the book the authors explain how from a different point of view the coal sack looks way cooler than it does in the image referenced above.
A book Review is available.
