Pleiades star cluster

Star

The Pleiades Star Cluster, Jan. The Pleiades is one of the brightest and closest open clusters. The Pleiades contains over 3000 stars, is about 400 light-years away, and only 13 light-years across.

Extreme star cluster bursts into life in new Hubble image

Extreme star cluster bursts into life - The star-forming region NGC 3603 - seen here in the latest Hubble Space Telescope image - contains one of the most impressive massive young star clusters in the Milky Way.

Messier 5 ~ A globular star cluster, 100,000 stars or more, bound by gravity and packed into a region around 165 light-years in diameter. It lies only 25,000 light-years away. Roaming the halo of our galaxy, globular star clusters are ancient members of the Milky Way. M5 is one of the oldest, its stars estimated to be nearly 13 billion years old. The beautiful star cluster is a popular target for Earthbound telescopes. (NASA)

‘Runaway’ Star Cluster Breaks Free from Distant Galaxy

This artist's illustration shows the hypervelocity star cluster escaping from the supergiant elliptical galaxy is the first runaway star cluster discovered by astronomers. It is fated to drift through intergalactic space. David A.

Pink! #CottonCandyNebula | The nebula known as N11, complete with sparkly star clusters embedded in fluffy pink clouds of gas. This exceptionally energetic star forming region also known as the #BeanNebula extends over 1,000 light years in the Large Magellanic Cloud

Cotton Candy Nebula - The nebula known as complete with sparkly star clusters embedded in fluffy pink clouds of gas. This exceptionally energetic star-forming region, also known as the Bean Nebula, extends over light-years in the Large Magellanic Cloud.

Entire star cluster thrown out of its galaxy

The monstrous elliptical galaxy is the home of several trillion stars, a supermassive black hole, and a family of globular star clusters. One of those globular clusters, is escaping the galaxy after being flung outward at tremendous speed.

V-shaped Hyades star cluster easy to find

The V-shaped Hyades star cluster represents the face of Taurus the Bull. The cluster is easy to spot in the evening sky in January.

Star Cluster Pismis 24/Nebula NGC 6357: Pismis 24 hangs over NGC 6357, a nebula about 8000 ly away in the constellation Scorpius. This picture showed that the brightest star in the cluster is in fact two stars in a tight binary orbit. Each star is about 100 times the Sun's mass. Hubble
