Globular cluster Messier 92 lies roughly 26,000 light years away in the constellation of Hercules. This celestial object containshundreds of thousands of stars bound together by mutual gravitational attraction in a space 100 light years in diameter. Researchers have great interest in these clusters as they are the oldest stellar systems known in the universe, being 12 to 14 billion years old. [Read the full story.]

A newly discovered galaxy cluster nicknamed "Gioiello," Italian for "jewel," is the most massive galaxy cluster ever detected with an age of 800 million years or younger.

Veil Nebula itself is a large supernova remnant, an expanding cloud born of the death explosion of a massive star. Cataloged as NGC 6979, the complex of filaments might be more appropriately known as Williamina Fleming's Triangular Wisp. NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day: September 17, 2015

Located some 1300 light-years away in the constellation of Carina (The Keel of the ship Argo). It is informally known as the Wishing Well Cluster, as it resembles scattered silver coins which have been dropped into a well, It was the first target to be observed by the NASA/ESA Hubble Telescope. (May 1990) The stars that with moderate masses are still shining brightly with blue-white colors, but the more massive ones have already exhausted their supplies of hydrogen becoming red giant stars.
