Liller 1 is of considerable interest to astronomers due to its stellar population. As a rule, globular clusters consist only of very old luminaries, but there are also young stars here.
Online a beautiful photo of the Liller 1 cluster has emerged. It consists of various young and old stars. This system is located 30 thousand years from the Milky Way.
“In globular clusters usually only old stars are found, but this cluster contains at least two separate stellar populations with markedly different ages: the oldest of them is 12 billion years old, and the youngest component is only 1-2 billion years old. This has led astronomers to conclude that this star system is capable of forming stars over an unusually long period of time,” the scientists wrote.
The photo was shown on the Instagram account of the Hubble telescope.
Earlier, the Cursor reported that scientists had discovered an object unknown to science in space. Scientists have observed a region of space called Vela-X 1 in the Milky Way, 1,300 light-years from Earth. They discovered an unusual radio signal that lasted only 300 milliseconds.

We also recall that scientists showed a video where you can consider in detail the space nebula Carina.
