Cluster NGC 2203 was copied by NASA / ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

NGC 2203 was first discovered by astronomer John Herschel on January 23, 1836, an intermediate-age open cluster located in the southern constellations of Mensa, also known as ESO 34-4 and LW 380.

NGC 2203 is an outer region of the Large Magellanic Cloud, a dwarf galaxy, 160,000 light years away from our Milky Way Galaxy, orbiting our Milky Way.  The area of ​​the NGC 2203 cluster is about 31 light years, according to researchers it has some stars which are twice our sun.

Cluster NGC 2203 is the closest to us, and is the best-looking star cluster, just a few days ago, NASA / ESA Hubble Space Telescope mimicked NGC 2203, in that we can see it shining bright and well  Apart from this, this group of stars has a lot of astronomical remedies, which have helped a lot in solving the puzzle of astronomers along with the lifetime of the stars.

Our Sun is like a main sequence star, which will become a dwarf star during the longest period of its life, why the Sun is constantly burning fuel, and the Sun does not have so much mass, that it is in its last phase a black hole  Become.  According to researchers, it can take about 6 billion years for the entire fuel of the sun to run out, and when the sun rises in the next phase of its life, when it turns into a red giant.

Astronomers studying cluster NGC 2203 say that the stars of cluster NGC 2203 are twice as large as those of our Sun, and their rotation may be a factor in how some stars form in the last stages of their lives. In why the main-sequence phase is generally longer. Researchers say that this is the best resolution of the star cluster so far.
