Description

This field has it all.
The oldest Globular in our Galaxy (NGC 6723) at 13.06 Billion Years, the impenetrable cold gas of the void of Nothingness and new born blazing blue stars pumelling infant Herbig Haro objects (NGC 6729). NGC 6729 might make it but in the background behind it is a pathetic wisp of submission that didn't. Space is red of tooth and claw.
