Also keep in mind that very much like our "constellations" are meaningless from anywhere else in the galaxy, what we see as the Pillars of Creation (or others) wouldn't look the same from any other angle.

In addition, the insane size of these things means that they are only really observable from afar. Flying around inside of them would look like nothing. ( - two of our solar systems would fit inside that little peak.) When you look up at clouds in the sky, some of them could be gorgeous, or shaped like bunnies and T-Rexes. But when you're in a plane, flying through those clouds, it all just looks grey. . .

I'm not a huge fan of how Sci-Fi has colored space the way it has, but it is standard now, and I don't forsee us changing that. I will also admit that it does make it all more interesting to fly around in.
