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.

They all go into the dark, the vacant interstellar spaces, the vacant into the vacant. Eliot, from The Complete Poems And Plays: 1909 - “Four Quartets”

Space image: beautiful orange and red Star cluster Pismis 24. Part of the nebula NGC 6357 is ionised by the youngest (bluest) heavy stars. High quality digital painting with carefully enhanced colors, more vibrant and vivid than in the original Hubble photo. Looks amazing as large metal or acrylic art print, poster or canvas. Bring the fascination of the universe in your home or office! Image credit for the original picture: NASA, ESA

A cluster of massive stars seen with the Hubble Space Telescope. The cluster is surrounded by clouds of interstellar gas and dust called a nebula. The nebula, located 20,000 light-years away in the constellation Carina, contains the central cluster of huge, hot stars, called NGC 3603. Recent research by NASA's ACE mission shows that galactic cosmic rays flowing into our solar system originate in clusters like these.
