What are globular clusters? They are basically stable, tightly bound groupings of tens of thousands to millions of stars, as can be seen in this image. There are so many stars in this image that it slightly resembles a massive cosmic treasure chest filled with gold. If you’re interested in seeing another globular cluster, there’s NGC 1898.
