Omega Centauri- SOLD by YouniquelyChic Omega Centauri- SOLD by YouniquelyChic
Omega Centauri: Also known as NGC 5139 is a globular cluster in the constellation of Centaurus,. Orbiting the Milky Way, it is both the brightest and the largest known globular cluster associated with our galaxy. Of all the globular clusters in the Local Group of galaxies, only Mayall II in the Andromeda Galaxy is brighter and more massive. Centauri is so different from other galactic globular clusters that it is thought to be of different origin. It is located about 15,800 light-years (4,850 pc) from Earth and contains several million Population II stars. The stars in its center are so crowded that they are estimated to average only 0.1 light years away from each other. It is about 12 billion years old. Omega Centauri is one of the few globular clusters visible to the naked eye and appears about as large as the full Moon. Kapteyn's star, which is currently only 13 light years away, is thought to originate from Omega Centauri. Omega Centauri's chemistry and motion in the galaxy is also consistent with this picture. Like Mayall II, Omega Centauri has a range of metallicities and stellar ages which hints that it did not all form at once (as globular clusters are thought to form) and may in fact be the remainder of the core of a smaller galaxy long since incorporated into the Milky Way.

Your work keeps getting better and better. I've been following your progress for a couple years now. I was astounded when I first discovered it, and now I'm absolutely in awe. I love it. I hope to purchase one of your pieces for myself soon.
