This stellar swarm is M80 (NGC 6093), one of the densest of the 147 known globular star clusters in the Milky Way galaxy. Located about 28,000 light-years from Earth, M80 contains hundreds of thousands of stars, all held together by their mutual gravitational attraction. Globular clusters are particularly useful for studying stellar evolution, since all of the stars in the cluster have the same age (about 15 billion years), but cover a range of stellar masses.
There is nothing to learn... some of us know that... Yes. In us... all the knowledge is available... Everything that has ever happened is present in this moment through vibration... or Frequencies... There is no past... no future... only this present moment... In this moment I can reach in... or out... and connect to all that is.
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)
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.
