Globular Cluster
Globular clusters (for example the M15) are very old remote structures, many of the resident stars will be red giants.   The view from a planet would be truly spectacular with up to a million bright stars to gaze out on. Although the planet is without its own star, the combined light of the cluster would be strong enough to cast shadows.

Commissioned by the BBC for 'The Sky At Night'
