This Hubble image shows A1758N, the northern part of the galaxy cluster Abell 1758. The cluster is approximately 3.2 billion light-years from Earth and is part of a larger structure containing two clusters sitting some 2.4 million light-years apart. But A1758N itself is further split into two sub-sections, known as East (A1758NE) and West (A1758NW). Image credit: NASA / ESA / Hubble.
Astronomers have spotted the largest yellow star ever observed in our galaxy and times larger than the sun. The yellow hypergiant star HR 5171 A is also in the of the largest stars known and about one million times brighter than the sun

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.
