The NGC 5128 Cluster System

  • Hugh C. Harris (a1), Gretchen L. H. Harris (a2) and James E. Hesser (a3)

Abstract

We review what has been learned about the globular clusters in NGC 5128 (Cen A). Two independent programs (our work at CTIO and Sharples” work at the AAT) have confirmed 87 objects as clusters in NGC 5128 from their velocities. We discuss the colors of the clusters, which are indicative of a wide range of metallicities, their velocities, and their origin as genuine globular clusters in this elliptical galaxy.
