Messier 13 - The Hercules Globular Cluster

Globular clusters are very-very old creatures. They almost as old as the Univers. Messier 13 is one of the oldest, even older then it's home galaxy Milky Way. It's orbiting in the galaxy slightly over it's plain. The gravitation is so strong beetwen the stars in the cluster, that after they die they stay together. Forever bondage!
