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 Phoenix Cluster (SPT-CL J2344-4243) is a massive, type I galaxy cluster located in the southern constellation Phoenix. Most of the mass of the Phoenix Cluster is in the form of dark matter. Space telescopes show that the central elliptical galaxy has been converting material to stars at an exceptionally astonishing rate, and contains one of the most massive black holes known in the universe. Phoenix Cluster is also producing more X-rays than any other known massive cluster.
