SHOOTING STAR – The Westerlund 1 Star Cluster
HUGE STAR HIDING IN STAR CLUSTER // 1,500 times larger than the Sun. If the huge star in the Westerlund I star cluster were placed in the middle of the Solar System, it would reach further than Jupiter’s orbit. On the other hand, the star, which is 3 million years old, is much younger than our 4.6-billion-year-old Sun.
