AbstractThe projected ellipticities of twenty four "blue" and "red" globular clusters of various ages and positions in the SMC have been found using isodensity contours. The derived ellipticities have shown that the globular clusters of the SMC are more elliptical than their counterparts of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) and our Galaxy. The observed ellipticities for both cluster types, do not support any age dependence.
