Cassiopeia Newsletter – 2014 Winter Solstice

FSR 584 - Pouponnière d'étoiles ou vieil amas globulaire dans la plan galactique? Cette image prise avec la caméra infrarouge WIRCam au télescope Canada-France-Hawaï réfute l'hypothèse de l'amas globulaire car le nombre d'étoiles comprises dans FSR 584 est trop faible pour maintenir une cohésion gravitationnelle à long terme. (de/from Loïc Albert, U. de Montréal)
