Cathedral to Massive Stars | Estimates made from distance, brightness and standard solar models had given one star in the open cluster #Pismis24 over 200 times the mass of our Sun, making it one of the most massive stars known. This star is the brightest object located just above the gas front in the featured image. Pismis 24-1 derives its brilliant luminosity not from a single star but from three at least. Component stars would still remain near 100 solar masses...

Pismis located at the core of small open star cluster Pismis can be seen in this image provided by NASA and ESA. The star cluster Pismis 24 lies in the core of the large emission nebula NGC 6357 that extends on the arm of the Sagittarius constellation.
