The Tadpole Galaxy (also known as UGC 10214 or Arp 188) is a disrupted barred spiral galaxy located about 420 million light-years away toward the northern constellation Draco. Its most dramatic features are an incredibly long trail of stars and massive, bright blue star clusters, reflecting the essence of our dynamic, restless and violent Universe. - Credit: NASA, Hubble, Mehdi Bozzo-Rey

Most nebulae is widespread and that means that they are very large and do not have well-defined boundaries. In visible light, these nebulae can be divided in emission nebulae and reflection nebulae based on how you create the light we see. The emission nebulae contain ionized gas (mostly ionized hydrogen) that produces spectral lines of emission. They are often called H II regions derived from the language of the professional astronomers referring ionized hydrogen.
