Pleiades star cluster

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.

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)

The Pleiades star cluster (M45) is a group of 800 stars formed about 100 million years ago. The cluster is located 410 light-years away from Earth in the constellation Taurus.

Astrophotographer Chuck Manges of Hooversville, Pa, took this amazing photo of the Seven Sisters aka The Pleiades Star Cluster.

The star Mira, with its 13-light-year-long tail, zips through the galaxy at 291,000 miles per hour! This image was made from several Galaxy Evolution Explorer images put together into a mosaic.

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!

Super Star Cluster #Westerlund2! 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 30,000 - 1,000,000 times greater than that of our Sun.

Ghostly Reflections in the Pleiades.  The Hubble Space Telescope has caught the eerie, wispy tendrils of a dark interstellar cloud being destroyed by the passage of one of the brightest stars in the Pleiades star cluster. Like a flashlight beam shining off the wall of a cave, the star is reflecting light off the surface of pitch black clouds of cold gas laced with dust. These are called reflection nebulae.

Star Cluster NGC 2367 lies about 7000 light-yrs from Earth in the constellation Canis Major. Having only existed for about 5 million years, most of its stars are young and hot and shine with an intense blue light. This contrasts wonderfully in this new image with the silky-red glow from the surrounding hydrogen gas. NGC 2367 and the nebula containing it are thought to be the nucleus of a larger nebula, known as Brand 16, which in turn is only a small part of a huge supershell, known as…

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

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.

Space image: beautiful orange and red Star cluster Pismis 24. Part of the nebula NGC 6357 is ionised by the youngest (bluest) heavy stars. High quality digital painting with carefully enhanced colors, more vibrant and vivid than in the original Hubble photo. Looks amazing as large metal or acrylic art print, poster or canvas. Bring the fascination of the universe in your home or office! Image credit for the original picture: NASA, ESA
