    Stunning Photo Reveals Colliding Star Clusters Seen by Hubble Telescope A new photo from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope shows two star clusters that appear to be in the early stages of merging. The colliding clusters are 170,000 light-years away in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a small satellite galaxy of our own Milky Way. They’re found in the core of a massive star-forming region called 30 Doradus, which is also known as the Tarantula Nebula.

This picture showed that the brightest star in the cluster is in fact two stars in a tight binary orbit. Each star is about a hundred times the Sun's mass.
