Pan across Messier 9

Loading player...

This video pans across Hubble observations of globular cluster Messier 9. This ball of stars (Hubble sees over 250 000 of them) is located towards the centre of our galaxy. A wide palette of colours is visible here, a testament to the varied temperatures of the stars in the cluster. Red stars are cooler, while blue ones are hotter.
