Star Cluster Pismis NGC Pismis 24 hangs over NGC a nebula about 8000 ly away in 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.
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.
infinity-imagined: Super Star Cluster Westerlund This cluster is so massive that it is expected to eventually evolve into a globular cluster. It hosts a dozen O-class hypergiant stars, each one with a luminosity - times greater than that of our Sun.
Also known as the Seven Sisters and the Pleiades lies about 400 light years away toward the constellation of the Bull (Taurus). Pleiades Deep Field Image Credit & Copyright: Stanislav Volskiy via apod.
A real shooting star! Mira (MY-rah) is a star that scientists have studied for 400 years. But NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explvery surprising image of Mira. It showed for the first time that Mira has a long tail of dust and light-years long!
is a star cluster located in the about light years away in the Large Magellanic Cloud Galaxy. The Tarantula Nebula is a star forming region, fueled by the star clusters hidden inside. The stars of Hodge 301 formed tens of millions of years ago.
