Open Cluster

Astronomical Dictionary

A group of young stars, possibly bound together by gravity. Over 750 of them have been recorded. It is thought that the stars in these clusters are relatively young and have recently been formed from interstellar gas clouds. Prominent examples are the Pleiades and Hyades clusters in Taurus.
