Hubble finds young super star cluster, giant star

Super star cluster discoveredNASA scientists have gotten a closer look at one of the largest stars ever discovered in a super star cluster, thanks to images from the Hubble Space Telescope.

A new image from Hubble has revealed a young super star cluster called Westerlund 1, home to a gigantic star known as Westerlund 1-26.

Westerlund 1 is a star cluster 15,000 light-years away from Earth in the Milky Way galaxy.

Stars are classified by their spectral type, surface temperature and luminosity. Westerlund 1-26 is a red supergiant with a radius over 1,500 times that of the sun.

According to scientists, if Westerlund 1-26 was placed next to the sun, it would extend beyond the orbit of Jupiter.

TNL Comment:  Take a handful of lunches with you if you're planning a trip. This cluster is about 88,179,380,597,754,116 miles away.  Really.  That's nearly 89 trillion miles.
