Caption

Globular star cluster NGC 6101. This globular star cluster is located in the constellation Apus. It is around 50,000 light years from Earth, and 36,500 light years from the galactic centre. Globular star clusters, dense spherical collections of stars, can contain over a million stars within a volume only a few hundred light years across. They formed billions of years ago in the early history of the galaxy. This image was obtained by the Hubble Space Telescope.
