At its heart, a cluster of newborn stars is visible through binoculars and small telescopes. Supernova 1987A, the first supernova visible to the naked eye for nearly 400 years, exploded near the Tarantula Nebula.

the large Magellanic cloud (lmc) 2 1 5 A satellite galaxy of our own, some 170,000 light-years away. It looks at first sight like a detached part of the Milky Way, spanning about 12 full moon diameters. Binoculars and small telescopes bring numerous star clusters and nebulous patches within it into view. Though named after the leader of the first expedition to circumnavigate the Earth, the first probable mention of the LMC is in the work of al-Sufi, a 10th-century Arab astronomer.
