17 Unbelievable Nebulae

Nebulae are clouds of dust and gas in space where stars are formed.  They are often called star nurseries, because this is where matter comes together under the force of gravity to form the stars in the sky.  In a lot of the images, one can see actual baby stars just forming.  These are actual pictures taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.  Unbelievable!
