Fog: definition, location and variants

Nebula is a Latin word meaning “cloud,” but in an astronomical context it refers to any celestial object that appears cloud-like when viewed through a telescope.

Back when telescopes weren’t as powerful as they are today, this term included galaxies like our neighboring galaxy Andromeda, often referred to as the “Andromeda Nebula.”
