Hubble Captured Colorful Twinkling Stars Packed Close Together. On September 12, NASA shared a rare photo of the globular cluster NGC 1805, located near the edge of the Large Magellanic Cloud. Taking to its official Instagram handle, NASA shared the mystic photo of the tight cluster of thousands of stars located near the satellite of the Milky Way galaxy, captured by NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. “In its center, thousands of stars are packed 100 to 1,000 times closer to one another than the nearest stars are to our Sun,” NASA explained in the caption of the post. NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope recently captured the globular cluster NGC 1805 image containing many beautiful, colorful stars packed close together. This cluster of colorful stars located the edge of the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of our own Milky Way.
NGC 1805 is located approximately 163,000 light-years away in the southern constellation of Dorado. The cluster is also known as ESO 85-32 and KMHK 459. The stars orbit closely to one another. In the dense center of one of these clusters, stars are 100 to 1,000 times closer together than the nearest stars are to our Sun, making planetary systems around them unlikely.
The section of the universe packed with thousands of multicolored stars, scientifically known as the globular clusters are all born at the same time. However, the NGC 1805 is unique and different as it contains two separate populations of stars, which are located millions of years apart, tightened together in a cluster. The stars orbit closely to one another, like bees swarming around a hive. NASA said. There are stars, packed almost 100 to 1,000 times closer together compared with the nearest ever known star to the sun in the dense center of NGC 1805 that makes planetary systems around the formation impossible.
