Hubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys shows individual as well as clusters of stars in the spiral galaxy NGC 300, located approximately 7 million light-years away from Earth. In this image, a dense swarm of stars, patches of dust, and a bright star cluster are visible, all located near the nucleus of the galaxy. Similar clusters are thought to be related to the formation of supermassive black holes.
