This sparkling starfield, captured by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Camera 3 and Advanced Camera for Surveys, contains the globular cluster ESO 520-21 (also known as Palomar 6).

A densely packed, roughly spherical collection of stars, it lies close to the center of the Milky Way, where interstellar gas and dust absorb starlight and make observations more challenging.

ESO 520-21 lies in the constellation Ophiuchus, near the celestial equator.

Explosion in Ophiuchus galaxy cluster is biggest seen to date

A black hole in the Ophiuchus galaxy cluster, located 390 million light-years from Earth, triggered a massive explosion.

NASA's Chandra X-ray Telescope, XMM-Newton, and two radio telescopes meausred the release of energy.
