Nebulae

A nebula is an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and an arrangement of ofhter gases.

These are some of the most awe-inspiring things to view in the night sky. Some can be seen with the naked eye as a fuzzy object in the sky. With the aid of binoculars or a telescope, these items come into full focus.
