Re: January 2018 Astrophotography Contest

The spectacular Tarantula Nebula (NGC 2070) is an extremely luminous nebula situated in the Large Magellannic Cloud. At its core lies a compact star cluster approximately 35 light years in diameter. The estimated mass of the cluster is 450,000 solar masses, suggesting it will become a globular cluster in the future.
