NGC 1866

(globular cluster of interest in the LMC)

NGC 1866 is a Globular Cluster (GC) in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) of recent research interest. (It has been classified as an Open Cluster as well, but I find recent references call it a globular cluster.) It is younger than many observable globular clusters, thus offering the chance to observe an earlier stage in the evolution of globular clusters and their stars.
