NGC 2100 is an open cluster in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a small satellite galaxy of the Milky Way. These clusters have a lifespan measured in tens or hundreds of millions of years, as they eventually disperse through gravitational interaction with other bodies. As its format is approximately round, it's sometimes mistaken as a globular cluster.
