There are all different kinds of galaxies, There's named galaxies, naked eye galaxies, prototypes, and interacting galaxies etc.
We live in a galaxy, The Milky Way. It received this name by the Greeks calling it the "milky circle". The milky way is basically a hazy band of white lights that is covered in hot gas (stars). It is shown to be at least 1,000,000 kelvins. It also has over 200 billion stars, but when you look up into the night sky, the most you can see from any one point on the globe is about 2,500. The number of stars in the Milky Wayc onstantly changes it always loses stars, and always produces more stars. About 7 new stars per year. The milky way does have a black hole at the center but it's not too serious.
Star formations are in galaxies. They are what causes the stars to form, they are sometimes referred as star forming regions
In the 10th century, the Persian astronomer Al-Sufi made the earliest recorded observation of the Andromeda Galaxy, describing it as a "small cloud". That's with the nebulae. The nebulae is a cloud of gas and dust in outer space, visible in the night sky either as an indistinct bright patch or as a dark silhouette against other luminous matter. They are a different type of galaxy.
There are millions of galaxies out in the solar system, we just don't see it. They all come in different shapes and sizes. Some are very colorful and some are not at all.
