What is a dark nebula?

    A dark nebula is a type of interstellar cloud composed of dense, non-luminous gas and dust. Unlike other types of nebulae that are visible due to the light they reflect or emit, dark nebulae appear as obscuring patches against the background of brighter stars or nebulae. These clouds can be the birthplaces of stars as their gravitational forces can lead to the collapse and formation of new stellar bodies.
