NGC 362 is one of only about 170 globular clusters of stars that exist in our Milky Way Galaxy. This star cluster is one of the younger globulars, forming likely well after our Galaxy. NGC 362 can be found with the unaided eye nearly in front of the Small Magellanic Cloud. The featured image was taken with the Hubble Space Telescope to help better understand how massive stars end up near the center of some globular clusters.
Imagine what our night sky would look like if we were located in the middle of this cluster?!
