Stars come in bunches. Of the over 200 globular star clusters [ http://ast.leeds.ac.uk/research/gcs.html ] that orbit the center of our Milky Way Galaxy [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap980523.html ], 47 Tucanae is the second brightest globular cluster [ http://www.limber.org/globs.html ] (behind Omega Centauri [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap001015.html ]). Known to some affectionately as 47 Tuc [ http://www.ast.cam.ac.uk/OpenDay/HST/page7.html ] or NGC 104, it is only visible from the Southern Hemisphere [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap001223.html ]. Light takes about 20,000 years to reach us from 47 Tuc [ http://www.seds.org/messier/xtra/ngc/n0104.html ] which can be seen near the SMC [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap000430.html ] in the constellation of Tucana [ http://www.astro.wisc.edu/~dolan/constellations/ constellations/Tucana.html ]. Red Giant stars [ http://plabpc.csustan.edu/astro/stars/giant.htm ] are particularly easy to see in this picture [ http://crux.astr.ua.edu/gifimages/47tuc.html ]. The dynamics of stars near the center of 47 Tuc [ http://adsabs.harvard.edu/cgi-bin/nph-bib_query?bibcode=1996ApJ...471..804S ] are not well understood, particularly why there are so few binary systems [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap970219.html ] there.
