M5, your new favorite globular cluster

 

http://earthsky.org/clusters-nebulae-galaxies/m5-best-globular-cluster-for-small-telescopes?

 

M5 is a globular star cluster. Globular clusters reside within the galactic halo – a sphere-shape region of the Milky Way that extends above and below the galactic disk. If we liken the disk to a hamburger, then the bun would be the galactic halo. Globular star clusters contain hundreds of thousands of stars, tightly packed in a symmetrical ball. These clusters are our galaxy’s oldest inhabitants. In other words, they formed first, as the galaxy was forming. Spanning 165 light-years in diameter, M5 is one of the larger globular clusters known. It contains more than 100,000 stars, as many as 500,000 according to some estimates.

Awesome..really helps to realize  the Majesty and unimaginable power of Jehovah. Space is a very beautiful place. Makes me wonder if there will ever be a time when we will be able to actually see and enjoy all this beauty on a larger scale than we do now.  We know Jehovah doesn't create for nothing.( duh 2 negatives in one sentence)

Out where He resides has to be extremely beautiful..
