Abstract We carried out a search for new infrared star clusters, stellar groups and candidates using WISE images, which are very sensitive to dust emission nebulae. We report the discovery of 437 embedded clusters and stellar groups that show a variety of structures, both in the stellar and nebular components. Pairs or small groupings of clusters are observed, suggesting multiple generations at the early formation stages. The resulting catalogue provides Galactic and equatorial coordinates… Expand
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. TheExpand
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 fromExpand
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 DigitalExpand
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,Expand
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 propertiesExpand
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 theExpand
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. TheirExpand
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-DR2Expand
The IC 5146 star forming complex and its surroundings with 2MASS, WISE and Spitzer
Throughout the last decade sensitive infrared observations obtained by the Spitzer Space Telescope significantly increased the known population of YSOs associated with nearby molecular clouds. WithExpand
Open cluster survey within 1 kpc by the Gaia DR2
We conducted a survey of open clusters within 1 kpc from the Sun using the astrometric and photometric data of Gaia DR2. We found 650 cluster candidates by visual inspection of the stellarExpand


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 dataExpand
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 densityExpand
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 theExpand
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. UsingExpand
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. WeExpand
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 surfaceExpand
