Classification of Galaxies and Nebulas/Universe Structures
*cloud of interstellar gas and dust.
*a system of billions of stars, gas, and dust
Solar System
Scale of Universe
students should be able to
*compare /contrast 3 types of galaxies
*compare/contrast 5 types of nebulas
*understand universe and galaxy structures
Works Cited
The End!
*not a clearly defined shape ,large amounts of gas and dust, and stars are young
*Elliptical- round, dimmer stretched out circle

*Spiral-twisted collection of stars and dust, made up of hot young stars

*a bright diffuse nebula that emits light as a result of ionization of its gas atoms by UV radiation
* reflects the light of neighboring stars.
* absorbs and obscures the light from stars behind it, appearing as a dark patch in front of a bright nebula .
* expanding shell of thin ionized gas that is ejected from and surrounds a hot, dying star of about the same mass as the sun
Supernova Remnant

*the gas absorbs UV radiation from the central star and reemits it as visible light by the process of fluorescence.
*structure resulting from the explosion of a star in a supernova.
*the sun, the planets,and everything else revolving around it

*super cluster
*galaxy cluster
