An image of a double Globular Cluster has been uploaded

Hi all,

I know that it has been a while since my latest uploaded image. I apologize for that. Today, we have a new image displaying a double Globular Cluster: Messier 53 and NGC 5053. These clusters show a very peculiar tidal bridge between them as a consequence of a possible close gravitational encounter. This was discovered and described in 2010 (reference in the web site below).

Messier 53 and NGC 5053. A peculiar pair
