Astronomy Science ~ If our sun is part of M53 cluster, the night sky will shine like a jewel box containing the stars were bright. M53, also known as NGC 5024, is one of about 250 globular star clusters that survive in our galaxy. Most stars in M53 are older and redder than the Sun, but some enigmatic stars appear bluer and younger. These young stars might be contrary to the hypothesis that all the stars in M53 formed at nearly the same time. The stars are uncommon in M53 is known as blue stragglers or "lost blue star". After much debate, "lost blue star" is now considered a "star who rejuvenated" by fresh material that fell from a nearby binary star.

By analyzing images of globular clusters like the picture taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers using the abundance of stars similar to the "lost blue star" try to determine the age of globular clusters and hence limited by the age of the universe. M53, visible with a telescope toward the constellation of Bernice's Hair (Coma Berenices), contains over 250,000 stars and is one of the furthest globular clusters from the center of our galaxy.
