Globular Clusters are different from Open Clusters because of age and mass of the stars. The Globular Clusters lacks dust and gases that made stars and planets which is common in Open Clusters. Most stars in Globular Clusters are red giant stars or white dwalfs. The nearest Globular Cluster is a M13 located in constellation Hercules.
