Wan­der­ing stars

Sky at Night Magazine - - EYE ON THE SKY -

The false colour added to this im­age high­lights the im­mense starlight given off by the stel­lar res­i­dents in the nu­mer­ous gal­ax­ies of Abell 2744, Pan­dora’s Clus­ter. The darker blue ar­eas are the lo­ca­tions of long-dead gal­ax­ies, the light in th­ese re­gions em­a­nat­ing from lone stars that are float­ing through the clus­ter but are not grav­i­ta­tion­ally linked to any of the sur­round­ing star sys­tems.
