Hubble Scan of Milky Way Lucky to Find Distant Star Cluster


A team scanning the Milky Way happened upon a rare glimpse of a distant galaxy.  What is perplexing is the star’s red-shift is much higher than expected for the distance and age of the stars.  Either there is something wrong with the model used currently, or there is something different about these stars. 

It still amazes me the pictures and discoveries the Hubble telescope has brought us to digest.  I look forward to the next generations of telescopes!
