NASA's Hubble snapshots show NGC 1850 in different wavelengths


NASA's Hubble Space Telescope snapped a pair of "dazzlingly different" images of a brilliant star cluster some 160,000 light years away.

Globular cluster NGC 1850, in the constellation Dorado, is approximately 63,000 times the mass of the sun, is 100 million years old and is located in the Large Magellanic Cloud, NASA said in a news release.

A birthplace for billions of stars, the Large Magellanic Cloud is a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way.
