Globular cluster in night sky. Artwork of the view from the surface of a planet on the outskirts of a globular star cluster. A globular star cluster is a densely packed ball of thousands to millions of stars formed at the same time. The stars found in a globular cluster are thought to be among the oldest stars known. This planet is an orphan. It has been ejected from its orbit around its parent star by the gravitational influence of the closely packed stars of the globular cluster.
