Stars

(page 4)

This category includes pictures of stars in various stages of life, from hot young stars illuminating the gas from which they recently formed, to old stars that are losing their outside layers as planetary nebulae. Also shown are pictures of star clusters, which include loose "open clusters" containing just a few hundred stars and very dense "globular clusters" which may contain over a million stars and are among the oldest objects in our galaxy.
