Caption: Open star cluster NGC 6124. True-colour optical image of the open star cluster NGC 6124 in the constellation Scorpius. Open star clusters such as this one are believed to contain stars which all formed from the same cloud of gas and dust, and at roughly the same time. This image was produced by digitally combining photographs taken by the UK Schmidt Telescope in blue and red light.
