PoW for Sept. 28 :: FSR584, abundances, compact objects…

Hello, welcome to another issue of “Papers of the Week”, covering publications and preprint related to the world of Galactic Globular Clusters!

This issue features the entry (as a preprint on astro-ph) of the discover of *another* globular clusters in our Galaxy, FSR584 (see the paper by Bica et al.), as well as a good amount of publications on abundances, variability and compatc objects.

As always, any feedback on PoW will be much appreciated 😉
