Astronomy Science ~ Amazing pictures shows NGC 6535, a globular cluster within 22,000 light-years away in the constellation of Serpens (the Snake).

Globular clusters tightly bind groups of stars that orbit a galaxy. A large mass in the center of globular clusters attract the stars to form the ball into the star. Globulus word in their name is derived from the Latin word meaning small ball.

Globular clusters are generally very ancient objects that formed at the same time as its parent galaxy. To date, no new star formation observed in globular clusters, which explains the abundance of older yellow stars in this picture, most of them contain very few heavier elements.

NGC 6535 was first discovered in 1852 by British astronomer John Russell Hind. The cluster appears as a faint dot on the telescope that used by Hind. Now, over 160 years later, instruments such as the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) and the Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) in the telescope NASA / European Space Agency (ESA) Hubble Space Telescope allows us to admire the cluster and observe the contents in more detail ,
