English: This image, a small region in the heart of the Omega Centauri globular cluster, was taken with the Hubble Space Telescope Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2. Omega Centauri is so large in our sky that only a small portion of it could fit in the camera's field of view, but even this region contains some 50,000 stars in an area about 13 light years wide. A similar area located where our Sun resides would contain about a half a dozen stars.
