Hubble Space Telescope captures beautiful image of nearby star cluster

A dazzling new image from the Hubble Space Telescope captures a stunning view of a nearby open cluster of stars slowly dissolving into the dwarf galaxy that surrounds it.

The photo shows part of the Small Magellanic Clouda dwarf galaxy of the Milky Way that’s only 200,000 light-years from Earth and the smaller partner of the slightly closer Large Magellanic Cloud, also a neighboring dwarf galaxy. Its proximity allows us to observe it in such detail that the Hubble Space Telescope can see a relatively small collection of stars with remarkable clarity.
