• Photo Gallery - Globular Clusters
     
    Globular Clusters are collections of stars that are smaller than galaxies.  They usually have millions of stars.  Globular Clusters are gravitationally bound and resemble a great snowball.  Some have very tight centers, some are rather loosely gathered.
     
    If a globular cluster on the list has an M in front of a number that means it is on the list compiled by Charles Messier.  His list is most of the best objects to see from Earth.
     
    These are the globular clusters in this archive.  These pictures were taken by volunteer astronomers at the Insperity Observatory in Humble ISD.
