47 Tucanae (NGC 104)

47 Tucanae (NGC 104)

47 Tucanae is the second brightest globular cluster in the Milky Way. It is massive, consisting of more than 500,000 stars in an area only 120 light-years across, clustered at its dense center. Among these stars are many exotic objects, including blue stragglers and millisecond pulsars. Despite several searches, no planets have been found in 47 Tucanae. This image results from 8 missions taken during 2021 using the Slooh Chile Two telescope at the Santa Martina Observatory, La Dehesa, Santiago, Chile.
