NGC 2419, often called the Intergalactic Wanderer because of the 300,000 light years distance from our galaxy. Originally not thought to be gravitational bound to our galaxy, it now thought to be in orbit around our galaxy and takes about three billion years to complete one orbit. If not for its extreme distance, it would be one of the brightest globular clusters in the night sky, as it is one of the most massive globular clusters that orbit our galaxy.
