A globular cluster is a spherical collection o starns that orbits a galactic core as a satellite. Globular clusters are very tichtly boond bi gravity, which gies them thair spherical shapes an relatively heich stellar densities taeward thair centers. The name o this category o starn cluster is derived frae the Laitin globulus—a smaa sphere. A globular cluster is sometimes kent mair simply as a globular.
