NGC 6520

NGC 6520 is an open star cluster located about 5,500 light years away towards the constellation Sagittarius. It is about 10 light years across. The bright blue stars are only a few million years old, much younger than our Sun.

Blocking the light of NGC 6520 is Barnard 86, an absorption nebula and molecular cloud. It contains is filled with thick dust that obscures the star cluster. Surrounding the cluster and nebula in this image is part of the dense starscape of our own Milky Way.

NGC 6520 with Barnard 86

An image of the open star cluster NGC 6520 and nearby dust cloud Barnard 86, in the constellation Sagittarius, one of the densest parts of our Galaxy. This image was taken on June 24th, 2007 at the NSF’s Blanco 4-m telescope in CTIO, with B (blue), V (green) , I (orange) and H-alpha (red) filters. The bright young stars of this star cluster, which probably formed out of gas related to the nearby dust cloud, stand out in contrast to the background of older stars of the bulge of our Galaxy.

I’m fed up. My mums being stressful as usual, she’s getting even more so. People telling me I have to know everything, being so damn annoying if I get angry or don’t know something. My best friend is leaving. I feel crap a lot now. So I pass it off as fine.

This image from the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile, shows the bright star cluster NGC 6520 and its neighbour, the strangely shaped dark cloud Barnard 86. This cosmic pair is set against millions of glowing stars from the brightest part of the Milky Way — a region so dense with stars that barely any dark sky is seen across the picture.

An #6520 ich merke schon dass ich deinen scheiß IQ an meinen Fingern abzählen kann. "Schwul " als Beleidigung zu nutzen strebt nicht gerade an hoher Intelligenz an.. Fühle mich grad so schlau wegen der atikulierung HAHAAHAHAHA
