The globular cluster
Omega Centari or NGC
5139 is located about
15,000 light-years away
from Earth.  There are an
estimated 10 million stars
in this cluster that are
contained in a roughly
spherical shape about 150
light-years in diameter.  
Omega is the largest and
brightest of the globular
clusters that exist at the
fringe of our Milky Way
galaxy.  Observers in the
Northern Hemishpere
rarely see this object as it
is usually below or very
close to the Southern
horizon
