    Like a whirl of shiny flakes sparkling in a snow globe, many hundreds of thousands of stars move about in the globular cluster M13, as Hubble catches an instantaneous glimpse of one of the brightest and best-known globular clusters in the northern sky. This glittering metropolis of stars is easily found in the winter sky in the constellation Hercules, and can even be glimpsed with the unaided eye under dark skies.
