Star Cluster Pismis NGC Pismis 24 hangs over NGC a nebula about 8000 ly away in Scorpius. This picture showed that the brightest star in the cluster is in fact two stars in a tight binary orbit. Each star is about 100 times the Sun's mass.

-- Star cluster NGC 3293 - Most of the stars seen here are very young, and the cluster itself is less than 10 million years old. Just babies on cosmic scales if you consider that the Sun is billion years old and still only middle-aged
Massive blue young stars fill the young cluster Messier which has freed itself from the gas of its nascent molecular clouds. The bright young stars dominate the cluster, but other smaller stars born at the same time, burning fainter, will
This artist's concept illustrates a supermassive black hole with millions to billions times the mass of our sun. Supermassive black holes are enormously dense objects buried at the hearts of galaxies. Image by NASA/JPL-Caltech
An international team of astronomers has discovered an exotic young planet that is not orbiting a star. This free-floating planet, dubbed PSO is just 80 light-years away from Earth and has a mass only six times that of Jupiter.
