A nebula, in general, is not particularly hot. They are usually visible due to embedded stars.

about 900,000,000 degrees Fahrenheit

Unknown as there are none close enough to study!!

It's a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles making up the nebula.If you were hoping for an answer like "50 degrees" ... they don't work that way; they can have any temperature.

there are many different types of nebulae:eagle nebuladark nebulaemission nebulareflection nebulasupernova nebulaplanetary nebulathe crab nebulathe Orion nebulathe helix nebulathe wolf generated nebulathe twin jet nebulacometary nebulacupids nebulathe horse head nebulathe horse head and flamesEskimo nebulathe ring nebulathe lemon slice nebulaboomerang nebulatarantula nebulared square nebulacateye nebularosette nebulahourglass nebulaeta canarie nebulai am not very sure if that's all of themby: cierra currier

That is hot enough to ignite hydrogen fusion, so the nebula becomes a star (possibly with planets).

Who knows,it can not be under 100000 degrees of it would support life.

When a gas contracts, its temperature will increase. In this case, the gas contracts due to the gravitation.

It does not exist.There are:Solar NebulaPlanetary NebulaH NebulaSupernova Nebula (Supernova Remnant)Or just plain nebula.

Flame Nebula Orion Nebula Eagle Nebula Omega Nebula Horsehead Nebula Eskimo Nebula Hourglass Nebula Pelican Nebula Helix Nebula (Eye of God) The list goes on. If you want to learn more I suggest checking out the NASA website or even looking up "nebula" on wikipedia where the have a list of the more notable nebula's.

Triffid Nebula, Eagle Nebula, Cat's Eye nebula

The Crab Nebula is a supernova remnant and pulsar wind nebula.

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

The largest known nebula is Tarantula Nebula

The Stingray Nebula (Hen 3-1357) is a planetary nebula. (The youngest known).

The nebula contracts under the influence of the mutual gravity of all those atoms and dust particles. As its size decreases, density increases, and central pressure and temperature increase.

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

A nebula does not explode. A nebula is generally the remains of a supernova explosion.

The lowest temperature observed in the universe is -272.15 Kelvin in the most coolest place of universe "boomerang nebula " also cosmic background radiation approaches this temperature

"The Crab" is a nebula.

The location of the nebula is in many places because the nebula exists in different constellations. A nebula is a cloud of interstellar dust.

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 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

An Eskimo nebula is a bipolar double-shell planetary nebula. It is also known as a clownface nebula, or a Caldwell 39.
