As NASA shared the clip, in the caption of the post, they informed, "Liller 1 is a globular cluster – a roughly spherical grouping of stars held together by gravity. However, while most of these types of clusters are home to older stars, Liller 1 hosts two populations of stars with remarkably different ages."
