Globular clusters in the outer galactic halo: AM-1 and palomar 14

Dotter, Aaron; Sarajedini, A; Yang, Soung-Chul


AM-1, at 120 kpc, and Palomar 14 (Pal 14), at 70 kpc, are two of the most distant Galactic globular clusters (GCs) known. We present Hubble Space Telescope Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 photometry of AM-1 and Pal 14 that reveals unprecedented depth and detail in the color-magnitude diagrams of these two clusters. Absolute and relative age measurements confirm that both are younger than the inner halo GC M 3 by 1.5-2 Gyr assuming all three clusters have similar compositions. Thus AM-1 and Pal 14...[Show more]
