Oh thats very cool! Looks like there’s a couple of Wolf-Rayet stars in there, which are known to blow bubbles driven by intense stellar winds. I suspect thats what we’re seeing.

Wiiliam I cant get what you linked to load. I see it says M33 image in top right, but it stops loading at a gray screen.

outside the Hubble area, unfortunately!

If you go a little to the south you’ll find HST imaging of the M33 galaxy

Thanks for that, I know there was a viewer that lets you view HST images of the star cluster.
Checking MAST…
