View of a Sun-like star within an open cluster (artist’s impression)

5 years ago25 views

This video shows an artist's animation of an open star cluster. Most stars, including the Sun, are thought to have formed within open star clusters — groups of thousands of stars loosely bound together by gravity, destined to be spread throughout their host galaxy once the cluster matures and most of its gas disperses.
