Astronomers explain proper motion in Omega Centauri
Space Telescope Science Institute astronomers Jay Anderson and Roeland van der Marel discuss their in-depth study of the giant cluster Omega Centauri. The team used Hubble’s exquisite resolving power to measure the positions for stars in 2002 and 2006. From these measurements, they can predict the stars’ future movement.
