Nebulae

A Nebula (Nebulae pl) is a cloud of interstellar gas and dust that appears nebulous, hazy, or fuzzy, and extended in a telescope view. The word nebula comes to us from Latin, where it meant "mist" or "cloud." There are different types of nebula known as dark, emission, and reflection along with shapes, such as diffused, planetary and supernova remnant. Most of the emission nebulae are areas of new star birth such as the Orion nebula.
