Characterizing star cluster formation with WISE: 652 newly found star clusters and candidates

We report the discovery of 652 star clusters, stellar groups and candidates in the Milky Way with WISE. Most of the objects are projected close to Galactic Plane and are embedded clusters. The

New detections of embedded clusters in the Galactic halo

Until recently it was thought that high Galactic latitude clouds were a non-star-forming ensemble. However, in a previous study we reported the discovery of two embedded clusters (ECs) far away from

A Multi-band Catalog of 10978 Star Clusters, Associations, and Candidates in the Milky Way

We present a catalog of Galactic star clusters, associations and candidates with 10978 entries. This multi-band catalog was constructed over 20 years, starting with visual inspections on the Digital

A WISE Survey of New Star Clusters in the Central Plane Region of the Milky Way

We present the discovery of new star clusters in the central plane region ( and ) of the Milky Way. In order to overcome the extinction problem and the spatial limit of previous surveys, we use the

An intriguing globular cluster in the Galactic bulge from the VVV survey

Recent near-IR Surveys have discovered a number of new bulge globular cluster (GC) candidates that need to be further investigated. Our main objective is to use public data from the Gaia Mission,

Properties of star clusters

Star clusters are tracers of both stellar and Galactic evolution. As such it is essential to analyse their properties and distribution in the Galaxy. Ideally clusters’ fundamental properties

207 New Open Star Clusters within 1 kpc from Gaia Data Release 2.

We conducted a survey of open clusters within 1 kpc from the Sun using the astrometric and photometric data of the Gaia Data Release 2. We found 655 cluster candidates by visual inspection of the

Five New Globular Clusters Discovered in the Galactic Bulge

This Letter reports the discovery of five new globular clusters (GCs) in the Galactic bulge (Camargo 1102, 1103, 1104, 1105, and 1106) using Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) images. Their

Three candidate globular clusters discovered in the Galactic bulge

This work reports the discovery of three new globular clusters (GCs) towards the Galactic bulge - Camargo 1107, 1108, and 1109. The discovery was made using the WISE, 2MASS, VVV, and Gaia-DR2

Bridge over troubled gas: clusters and associations under the SMC and LMC tidal stresses

We obtained SOAR telescope B and V photometry of 14 star clusters and 2 associations in the Bridge tidal structure connecting the LMC and SMC. These objects are used to study the formation and



Automated search for galactic star clusters in large multiband surveys: I. Discovery of 15 new ope

Aims. According to some estimations, there are as many as 100 000 open clusters in the Galaxy, but less than 2000 of them have been discovered, measured, and cataloged. We plan to undertake data

New galactic open cluster candidates from DSS and 2MASS imagery

An inspection of the DSS and 2MASS images of selected Milky Way regions has led to the discovery of 66 stellar groupings whose morphologies, color-magnitude diagrams, and stellar density

Star formation in the Vela molecular clouds. V. Young stellar objects and star clusters towards the C-cloud

We present the latest results from a sensitive (K ∼ 18 mag) near-infrared (JHK) imaging survey of IRAS selected young stellar objects associated with the Vela molecular ridge. These enlarge the

New Star Clusters Discovered in the GLIMPSE Survey

A systematic and automated search of the extensive GLIMPSE mid-infrared survey data of the inner Galaxy was carried out to uncover new star clusters. This search has yielded 59 new clusters. Using

The origin of massive O-type field stars. I. A search for clusters

We present a study aimed at clarifying the birthplace for 43 massive O-type field stars. In this first paper we present the observational part: a search for stellar clusters near the target stars. We

The youngest stellar clusters Clusters associated with massive protostellar candidates

We report on the identification of 54 embedded clusters around 217 massive protostellar candidates of which 34 clusters are new detections. The embedded clusters are identified as stellar surface


The distribution of young stars found in the Chandra Carina Complex Project (CCCP) is examined for clustering structure. X-ray surveys are advantageous for identifying young stellar populations

Towards a census of the Galactic anticentre star clusters – III. Tracing the spiral structure in the outer disc

In this paper we investigate the nature of 27 star cluster candidates, most of them projected towards the Galactic anticentre. We derive fundamental parameters for 20 confirmed clusters, among these

Discovery of new Milky Way star clusters candidates in the 2MASS point source catalog

A systematic search of the 2MASS point source catalog, covering 47% of the sky, was carried out aiming to reveal any hidden globular clusters in our Galaxy. Eight new star clusters were discovered by

Towards a census of the Galactic anticentre star clusters – II. Exploring lower overdensities

We investigate the nature of 48 low-level stellar overdensities (from Froebrich, Scholz and Raftery catalogue – FSR07) projected towards the Galactic anticentre and derive fundamental parameters for
