The most beautiful objects in the entire Universe are probably Nebulae. These gorgeous clouds range in size from hundreds of light years to even millions of light years across. They’re so elegantly named Nebula (Latin for “cloud”, plural: Nebulae, also occasionally Nebulas) and have dazzled amateur and professional Astronomers for hundreds of years.

A new age of astronomy is dawning, thanks to an unparalleled building boom of large, cutting-edge telescopes, both ground-based and space-based. These telescopes are expected to shed light on dark energy, distant solar systems, and other mysteries of the universe.
