Nebula name generator

Nebulae are interstellar clouds made up of dust and gases hundreds of light-years in diameter. Some can be seen with the naked eye, but they're very faint. Some can only be seen with long-exposure recording equipment.
The brightest nebula, the Orion Nebula, can be seen by the naked eye and takes up twice the space the moon does in the night sky, but is easily overlooked due to how faint it is.

Nebula are often named with either a code name (NGC 40, CRL 2688, etc.) or a regular name (or both) like the Egg Nebula, Water Lily Nebula and Helix Nebula. These names usually describe what the nebula looks like, like a type of intergalactic cloud watching.
This name generator focuses only on the regular names as you'll see below.

To start, simply click on the button to generate 10 random names. Don't like the names? Simply click again to get 10 new random names.
