Caption: Optical image of the globular star cluster NGC 362. NGC 362 is a typical example of the numerous globular star clusters which form a halo all around our galaxy, the Milky Way. It is found at a distance of about 25,000 light years in the direction of the Small Magellanic Cloud. Such star clusters may contain up to a few million stars closely packed together. They are believed to have been the first groups of stars to have formed in the early evolution of the Milky Way about 10 billion or more years ago.
