Fr.: système stellaire jeune non lié
A class of gravitationally loose stellar conglomerate with a notable apparent shape making it different from typical → bound → star clusters. The UYSS class includes a large range of objects, which extend at various size scales and at various degrees of self-binding; from small (semi-)compact → unbound systems named → stellar associations, to huge extended superstructures of → massive stars that make up whole parts of Galactic → spiral arms, known as → stellar complexes (Gouliermis, D.
