It seems likely that a number of astronomical phenomena, such as the formation of planetary nebulas, may be caused by the interaction where two stars orbit each other at close range.

(A) may be caused by the interaction where two stars orbit each other

(B) may be caused by the interaction between two stars that each orbit the other

(C) are because of the interaction between two stars that orbit each other

(D) are caused by the interaction of two stars where each is orbiting the otherÂ

E it is

A and B are out because of the use of May be with likely.

C and D are wordy because of not defining the actual cause...

E.

A and B is redundant because "seems likely" and "may" both express the speculation or hypothetical situation. in C, interaction between is not idiomatic . D is wordy and awakward, both.
