Messier 67, also known as NGC2682, is an open cluster in the constellation Cancer. It is a smaller, more dense counterpart to Messier 44, which appears in the heart of the crab-shaped constellation. It is thought to contain more than 500 member stars, 100 of which are similar to our own Sun. The cluster lies approximately 2,800 light-years from Earth.
