What is a nebula?  Click here.  Generally, nebulae are glowing regions in space, often associated with star formation.  The red nebulae glow with mostly H-alpha emissions.  Sometimes light is reflected off interstellar dust to form blue Reflection Nebula (click here to see my reflection nebula pictures).  Images and recreations of the nebulae are often used in movies and TV shows, so some photographs may look familiar.
