What is a Nebula?
Types of Nebulae
How is it Made?
Each of the two types of Nebulae have a different process in which they are made. The Planetary Nebula forms around dying stars. They are made out of the particles of gas that the dying star is releasing from it's atmosphere. It gives the star a very smooth appearance.
The Diffuse Nebula is created near very hot, bright stars. The star emits strong UV rays which energizes gas particles near the star. The UV rays let the gas particles give off their own light.
