The Saturday Night Globules
In astronomy, Bok globules are isolated and relatively small dark nebulae, containing dense cosmic dust and gas from which star formation may take place.
Bok globules are found within H II regions, and typically have a mass of about 2 to 50 solar masses contained within a region about a light year or so across (about 4.5×1047 m3).
They contain molecular hydrogen (H2), carbonoxides and helium, and around 1% (by mass) of silicate dust. Bok globules most commonly result in the formation of double
or multiple star systems.
