Often overlooked, but not forgotten…I really like this little gem of a chance alignment of a stars, just sitting out here all by itself.
NGC 7772 is a tiny collection of stars, spanning 3 arc minutes in the constellation Pegasus that were once thought to be an open cluster.
The stars were first recorded on 7 October 1825 by the British astronomer John Herschel.
It is located 4,900 light years away from Earth.
Recent Gaia Satellite data shows the stars in the area are unrelated.
