Where the Suns Never Set Imagine for a moment living on a planet orbiting a star member of a globular cluster in the thick of the Milky Way star cloud. Imagine what the sky would look like in the day time….and what it would appear like at night. Filled with hundred…. even thousands of surrounding suns, the night sky could very well never turn dark at all. On such a planet, “night? would be another suns filled day! The two such neighboring tightly populated globular clusters NGC6528 and NGC6522 reside in the thick of the Milky Way star cloud of Sagittarius. Last night, I said hello!
