Turbulence in a Star Forming Region The nebula’s sparkling centerpiece is a giant, young star cluster named NGC 2070, only 2 million years old. Its stellar inhabitants number roughly 500,000....


Ancient stars, of a type known as RR Lyrae, have been discovered in the centre of the Milky Way for the first time, using ESO’s infrared VISTA telescope. RR Lyrae stars typically reside in ancient stellar populations over 10 billion years old. Their discovery suggests that the bulging centre of the Milky Way likely grew through the merging of primordial star clusters. These stars may even be the remains of the most massive and oldest surviving star cluster of the entire Milky Way.


Seven Sisters , pleiades Star Cluster. Thanks, Ginny, for bringing Seven Sisters into my here and now-

#Triffid, #Lagoon, and #Mars | Bright nebulae and star clusters along this 5 degree wide field of view are popular stops on telescopic tours of the #ConstellationSagittarius and the crowded starfields of the central #MilkyWay. the colorful Trifid Nebula, and M8, the expansive Lagoon Nebula, are at upper left and center. Both are well-known star forming regions about 5,000 light-years distant. the yellowish star lined up with M8 and M20 at the lower right is actually #Mars, close to…

The star cluster Hodge 301 is inside the Tarantula Nebula. This nebula is located in our galactic neighbor, the Large Magellanic Cloud. Many of the stars in Hodge 301 are so old they have exploded. They are blasting material into the area around them at speeds of almost 200 miles per second! The high-speed matter is plowing into the nebula. The impact shocks and squashes the gas into long strands. | Star Clusters | Kids Discover
