Clusters

All the major clusters are given in this section. Brighter ones appear first.

Open as well as globular star clusters are included here.

An open cluster is a small loose collection of order 10^2 young stars (e.g. the Pleiades Cluster). A globular cluster is a huge dense collection of order 10^5 very old stars (e.g. the Omega Centauri Cluster).
