Hi all,

Another globular from the Messier catalog, M56, has been uploaded. This time, a cluster presenting two oddities: retrograde movement as it orbits the Milky Way, as well as its theorized origin, being the remainder of an “absorbed” (by the Milky Way) small galaxy that once was captured by the gravitational pull of our galaxy. You can find the image as well as some more information at:

Messier 56. NGC 6779
