NGC 7006 is a globular cluster in the
constellation Delphinus. NGC 7006 resides in the outskirts of
the Milky Way. It is about 135,000 light-years away, five times
the distance between the Sun and the center of the galaxy, and
it is part of the galactic halo. This roughly spherical region
of the Milky Way is made up of dark matter, gas and sparsely
distributed stellar clusters.
