White Dwarf Stars Migrate from Star Cluster

The Hubble Space Telescope released a new image of white dwarf stars migrating from a globular star cluster, according to HubbleSite (link opens in new window or tab). Hubble's recently-released images are the first images ever depicting the behavior of aging dwarf stars migrating away from its birthplace. Hubble's photo focuses on 47 Tucanae, a rather large globular star cluster in the Southern Hemisphere constellation Tucana the Toucan.
