Globular Clusters

Deep-Sky Object of the Week: M3

As spring in the Northern Hemisphere begins to blend into summer, the night sky changes as well: the huge galaxy-rich fields of early spring skies begin to drift down towards the west, and the objects closer to the Milky Way become more prominent. The late spring and early summer sky is full of an interesting type of object: globular clusters, huge balls of stars held together by their own gravity, orbiting the entire Milky Way galaxy.
