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.

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.

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.

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.

Emission nebula glow and reflection nebula reflect the light form other 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 planetary nebula is the "out blast" of a star that has died, at the centre of the planetary nebula will the the stellar remnants of the propagator star - a white dwarf.

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

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

a nebula is cloud of particles which forms into a star.

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 amount of gas and dust spread out in an immense volume that makes up a star while a prostar is the earliest stage of a star.

A nebula may condense and ignite to become a star, conversely a star may explode and form a nebula.

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

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.

As a nebula is a "cloud" of interstellar medium and a star is a compressed form of the same matter, a star is certainly denser than a nebula.

"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.

Nebula are formed when a star explodes, releasing its gas into a gas cloud (the nebula). the nebula then will eventually condense due to gravity and form another star.

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 a gas of dust and minerals that surrounds a star. Also, a nebula is a birthplace of a star, where a star and sometimes a solar system is formed after a huge explosions

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

A star like our sun will shed a planetary nebula after its 'death'
