The Different Types Of Star Clusters

Globular star clusters generally contain millions of individual stars,

 Lower mass stars burn through their fuel at a much slower rate than high mass stars

Stars within globular clusters are packed together in a relatively small region of space

Open star clusters are the opposite of globular clusters. Rather than containing a vast number of low mass stars,

One of the closest open star clusters to our solar system, and the only star cluster visible to the naked eye, is the Pleiades.

The Pleiades are one of the most well known objects in the night sky, and they have been observed by different civilizations for thousands of years.

 The Pleiades are located 444 light years from our solar system in the constellation Taurus
