Crab Nebula:

  • Pulsar wind nebula
  • Supernova remnant
  • Radius of 5.5 ly
  • 6,500 light years away

Orion Nebula:

  • Diffuse nebula
  • Stellar nursery
  • Radius of 12 ly
  • 1,244 light years away

Edit: M1, the Crab Nebula, is related to the death of a star. The Orion Nebula, M42, is relateted to the birth of stars.

Do you mean a nova? A Nebula is a large group of stars and dust in the sky. e.g. the Orion nebula. An individual star would not ordinarily change into a nebula, but the Crab Nebula is one such, first seen on earth about 1054 CE. But it had taken about 6500 years for the light to reach us. If your query was about nova or supernova, ask again.

The Crab Nebula is about 6,500 light years away from Earth (~ 2000 parsecs).
