A cloud in outer space consisting of gas or dust and planetry nebula is one of the types also called ring nebula or A planetary nebula is an emission nebula consisting of a glowing shell of gas

a nebula is one nebula. nebulae are 2 or more nebulas.


Both are the same except the solar nebula is the nebula that formed our solar system.


A solar nebula is related to the formation of our Solar System, any other nebula is just a nebula.


Emission nebula glow and reflection nebula reflect the light form other stars



The diffreence between a solar nebula and a Nebula is its size and if it is Intersteller or not a solor nebula is usually larger and forms a Solar System where a regular nebula is smaller and is mostly the result of a collapsed star or a Supernova.


The helix nebula is more close than the ring nebula, as well as much brighter and larger than the ring but with low surface brightness.


"Nebula" is a astronomical term for a cloud of gas and dust. "Nebulae" is the plural of "Nebula" and refers to more than one such cloud.


A molecular cloud is a type of nebula where it's density and size permits the formation of molecules.


Yes.There is the Life-Cycle of Stars. The first stage is stellar nebula. Much later in the cycle is the planetary nebula; after the Red Giant, and before the White Dwarf.


Crab Nebula:Pulsar wind nebulaSupernova remnantRadius of 5.5 ly6,500 light years awayOrion Nebula:Diffuse nebulaStellar nurseryRadius of 12 ly1,244 light years awayEdit: M1, the Crab Nebula, is related to the death of a star. The Orion Nebula, M42, is relateted to the birth of stars.


A nebula is a large cloud of gas in space, a planetary nebula is the large cloud of expanding superheated gas caused by the explosion of a red giant or other very large, very hot star. Neither have anything to do with planets.


A Nebula is a cloud of interstellar dust, hydrogen gas, helium gas and plasma, whereas a supernova is the explosion of a massive star. See related link for more information


Stellar is just like a birthmother that creates new stars, like a girls. NEBULA IS A BIRTHPLACE AND BIRTHMOTHER that also creates new stars but in a guys version


There isn't 'an' Eagle Nebula. There is 'the' Eagle Nebula. This is just the familiar name for a large cloud surrounding the Open Cluster M16. Nebulae come in all conceivable shapes and sizes, so they are all different from each other!


Orion is a constellation made up in the minds of the ancients to represent "Orion" a hunter in mythology. The Orion Nebula is a diffuse nebula located south or Orion's belt. It is an area of extensive star formation. It is only called Orion Nebula as it is seen within the constellation of Orion. See related questions


A nebula is an interstellar cloud of hydrogen, helium, plasma and dust.A star is a collection of matter, mostly hydrogen gas compressed to incredible pressure and heat by gravity.See related questions.



At the centre of the Crab Nebula is the neutron star - Crab pulsar.


A star is a large ball of gas, comprised mostly of hydrogen and helium, undergoing fusion as its main source of energy. A solar nebula is the remnants of a star's formation, the gas and dust was not accreted with the star. The solar nebula is thought to form the planets that orbit around the sun.


It's the length of time between two solar transits as observed from the planet's surface. That's typically close to the time the planet takes to make one complete axial rotation. In the case of Earth, the difference between the two is a bit less than 4 minutes.


Imagine the inside of an orange juice carton and the inside of a milk carton. It is exactly like that only to a bigger scale.


Gas and dust that make up nebula are made of matters. The matters of nebula are held together by gravity. There are lots of space in nebula between the particles. Gravitational attraction between the particles keeps them from drifting apart in a sphere.


A nebula is just a cloud of dust and small particles. The solar system is larger bodies like Jupiter, Saturn, etc. Our solar system has had most of the dust coalesced into planets, satellites, comets, and such.
