A vent hood on the ascent stage, to the left of the forward hatch as the lunar module is displayed in the gallery.

Picture 2 of 2.

There are a number of these vent hoods on the lunar module's ascent stage. I'm not certain what all the vents are for, but presumably these hoods are used to prevent any random propulsive forces, instead directing them in the desired direction.
