1.Reflection nebula

In astronomy, reflection nebulae are clouds of interstellar dust which might reflect the light of a nearby star or stars. The energy from the nearby stars is insufficient to ionize the gas of the nebula to create an emission nebula, but is enough to give sufficient scattering to make the dust visible. Thus, the frequency spectrum shown by reflection nebulae is similar to that of the …

2.Reflection nebula

Reflection nebula, interstellar cloud that would normally be a dark nebula (or molecular cloud) but whose dust reflects the light from a nearby bright star that is not hot enough to ionize the cloud’s hydrogen.The famous nebulosity in the Pleiades star cluster is of this type; it was discovered in 1912 that the spectrum of this nebula mimics the absorption lines of the nearby stars, whereas …

3.Reflection nebula

A reflection nebula is created when light from a star is scattered or reflected off a neighbouring dust cloud.The scattered light is slightly polarised and has a spectrum similar to that of the illuminating star, only bluer. This shift in colour arises because the typical size of dust grains in the cloud are comparable to the wavelength of blue light. . The result is that blue light is …

4.Reflection nebula

A reflection nebula is a cloud of interstellar gas and dust that reflects the light from other stars.This happens in the surroundings of stars that are not hot enough to excite the hydrogen atoms of the cloud (as is the case for emission nebulae that are emitting light, not just reflecting the light from stars).

5.Reflection nebula

Reflection Nebula was conceived by the Saint-Petersburg-based musician Vladimir Frith in 2009. Genre experiments and seeking self-treatment in sound have laid the groundwork for Vladimir’s work. His music blends together electronica, drone, ambient, instrumental, field recording and heavy genres.

6.Reflection nebula

Reflection Nebula. From the name, a reflection nebula is an interstellar cloud of dust particles that reflect light from a nearby star. This means that as opposed to an emission nebula that gives off various colors, a reflection nebula is unable to give off its own light, but has to rely solely on the light given off by a nearby source, typically a star.

7.Reflection nebula

A reflection nebula is a cloud of gas and dust which does not create its own light, but instead shines by reflecting the light from nearby stars. The brightest reflection nebulae are places where new stars are being formed. Here the gas and dust is thick and shines by the light of new, bright stars.

8.Reflection nebula

The Orion Nebula is a famous diffuse emission/reflection nebula located in the constellation Orion. It is also known as Messier 42 (M42) or the Great Orion Nebula. Its designation in the New General Catalogue is NGC 1976. The brightest stars in the nebula form an asterism known as the Trapezium Cluster. These young stars are responsible …

9.Reflection nebula

Just weeks after NASA astronauts repaired the Hubble Space Telescope in December 1999, the Hubble Heritage Project snapped this picture of NGC 1999, a reflection nebula in the constellation Orion.

10.Reflection nebula

A reflection nebula is a nebula produced when starlight reflects from very small dust particles floating in the interstellar medium, resulting in a bluish glow. A dark nebula is devoid of color.

M8 or the Lagoon Nebula and M20 or Trifid were first cataloged in 1764 by Charles Messier (Kronberg). The Trifid Nebula, M20, (at the upper right in the image) is a “rare combination of an emission and reflection nebula” (Koprolin).
