“Globular star cluster 47 Tucanae is a jewel of the southern sky. Also known as NGC 104, it roams the halo of our Milky Way Galaxy along with some 200 other globular star clusters. The second brightest globular cluster (after Omega Centauri) as seen from planet Earth, 47 Tuc lies about 13,000 light-years away. It can be spotted with the naked-eye close on the sky to the Small Magellanic Cloud in the constellation of the Toucan. The dense cluster is made up of hundreds of thousands of stars in a volume only about 120 light-years across. Red giant stars on the outskirts of the cluster are easy to pick out as yellowish stars in this sharp telescopic portrait. Tightly packed globular cluster 47 Tuc is also home to a star with the closest known orbit around a black hole.”

Se slzami v očích, ale musela jsem... pro tebe tati... a díky Bille


"Fly me to the moon
And let me sing among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars"


I see you, Bill.


A fabulous shot Bill, somehow looks calm and serene - an incomprehensible but wonderful immensity. ◔‿◔

Image passing this in a space ship...great post thanks so much.


You are not alone, Claire. I like it too. And judging by the number of solves, quite a few others do too.

For some reason I really like this picture. It is almost a perfect centered circle.


I'm glad you kids enjoyed this peek at globular cluster 47 Tucane. You're welcome, Donna, Cyndi, Janet, Jim, and luly. Thanks for dropping in!


Thank you Bill for sharing this amazing Globular star cluster 47 Tucanae with us, enjoyed the puzzle!


It's nince to peer through the orbiting telescopes 😵🔭 to be able to see what under normal circumstances would not be available to us. TFS Bill




Another amazing APOTD!


BM for later. Thanks, Bill, for another page in the Astronomical catalogue of Jigidi U.
