The Andromeda galaxy is one of the Milky WayÂ’s nearest galactic neighbors.
Astronomers recently found star clusters of a type never seen before orbiting Andromeda.
More familiar to scientists are globular clusters. These collections of stars are densely packed.
The newly discovered clusters are much larger and less dense than globular clusters.
These Â“extended clustersÂ” are not found in the Milky Way. Why not is still unknown.
