The most beautiful Nebulae

Nebulae are gas, stardust, gaseous cloud, etc that are scattered in the space of the universe form a big shape and beautiful sights.

nebula is an interstellar cloud of dust, helium, and other ionized gases. Originally, the term was used to describe any diffused astronomical object, including galaxies beyond the Milky Way. Nebulae are made of dust and gases—mostly hydrogen and helium. The dust and gases in a nebula are very spread out, but gravity can slowly begin to pull together clumps of dust and gas. As these clumps get bigger and bigger, their gravity gets stronger and stronger. Eventually, the clump of dust and gas gets so big that it collapses from its gravity. The collapse causes the material at the center of the cloud to heat up-and this hot core is the beginning of a star.

Where are nebulae found ?

Nebulae exist in the space between the stars—also known as interstellar space. The closest known nebula to Earth is called the Helix Nebula. It is the remnant of a dying star—possibly one like the Sun. It is approximately 700 light-years away from Earth. That means even if you could travel at the speed of light, it would still take you 700 years to get there!
