NGC 6752 

NGC 6752 is the third brightest globular cluster in the night sky, being bested only by Omega Centauri and 47 Tucana. At a visual magnitude of 5.4 it is visible to the naked eye from a dark sky site. It’s roughly 13,000 light-years from Earth in the direction of the southern constellation Pavo (The Peacock) and contains well over 100,000 stars within its 100 light-year diameter. Bright red giant stars which dominate this cluster can be seen in the above image.

[new] acnl forest town masterlist

here it is! the forest town masterlist i told you about. the list will be updated every once in a while with new towns so don’t worry if your town isn’t on the list yet.

all towns are listed in alphabetical order (A-Z-Ö) and be sure to check out all the mayors blogs to give them compliments on their towns!

towns with dream address’:

towns without dream address’:

if you think your town should be on this list then please send either me or leifsflower a message and we’ll be sure to add your town! and also: if it didn’t get added its probably because you have no pics available or it doesnt fit the forest town theme. (if i seem too strict pls let me know!)

and be sure to tell me if your town has gotten a dream address so i can move it to the right spot!

click here for the most recent update!

The WW crossover is done!

NGC 6752 is a globular cluster of intermediate density in the constellation Pavo. First identified in 1826 by James Dunlop, the cluster lies around 13,000 light years distant. It is visible to the naked eye in good viewing conditions. Photograph: NASA/STScI


I want to smoke, drink, I want to fucking blaze it; something anything to give me feeling. People around me think of me as such a twat for saying it, I should probably stop talking.

This is NGC 6752, the very prominent globular cluster in Pavo. It is generally regarded as the third best globular cluster in the sky having a visual magnitude of 3.4. Taken with a SBIG STXL11002 camera on a F9 36.8cm (14.5") Ritchey Chretien telescope. This is a LRGB exposure using Baader filters and total exposure time of 380 minutes.

At the Core of NGC 6752 
This sharp Hubble Space Telescope view looks deep into NGC 6752. Some 13,000 light-years away toward the southern constellation Pavo, the globular star cluster roams the halo of our Milky Way galaxy. Over 10 billion years old, NGC 6752 holds over 100 thousand stars in a sphere about 100 light-years in diameter, but the Hubble image frame spans the central 10 or so light-years and resolves stars near the dense cluster core. In fact the frame includes some of the cluster’s blue straggler stars, stars which appear to be too young and massive to exist in a cluster whose stars are all expected to be at least twice as old as the Sun. Explorations of the NGC 6752 have also indicated that a remarkable fraction of the stars near the cluster’s core, are multiple star systems, supporting arguments that star mergers and collisions in the dense stellar environment can create the cluster’s blue straggler stars.
