Pan across Messier 9

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.
