The Hubble Space Telescope regularly broadcasts spectacular images, from incredible spiral galaxies and galactic oddballs to beautiful pictures of the planets in our solar system and photographs that can give you a magical feeling.

The recent star-studded image indicates Terzan 9, a globular cluster in the constellation Sagittarius, towards the heart of the Milky Way. The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope caught this glittering scene utilizing its Wide Field Camera 3 and Advanced Camera for Surveys.

Globular clusters are reliable, tightly bound groupings of tens of thousands to millions of stars.

The image illustrates the hearts of globular clusters that can be densely jammed with stars; the night sky shown in this image is sprinkled with so many stars that it matches a sea of sequins or a vast treasure chest filled with gold.

The major region of our home galaxy encloses a tightly packed group of stars recognized as the Galactic bulge, which is also full of interstellar dust. This dust has created globular clusters near the Galactic center that are hard to study, as it consumes starlight and can even change the transparent colors of the stars in these clusters. Hubble’s sensitivity at both its visible and infrared wavelengths has enabled astronomers to measure how the colors of these globular clusters have been altered by interstellar dust, thereby establishing their ages.
