The space around us contains pockets of gasses that we see as Nebulae. Nebulae generally come in one of four categories: emission, reflection, planetary, and supernova remnant. Emission nebulae contain excited particles that glow due to radiation emissions from nearby stars, much in the same way that neon gas lamps glow. That energy usually results in new stars being born from the gasses as well. Reflection nebulas themselves do not emit any light; rather, we see them due to the light of nearby stars that they reflect. Planetary nebulae are caused by dying stars that are beginning to release some of their gasses; often, we can still see the star in the center from which those gasses are being expended. Supernova remnants are the leftovers from a star which has exploded. Nebulae of all types are often very colorful and extremely detailed.
