UBVIc photometry of NGC 3077 center

We present UBVIc photometry of starlike objects in the central region of NGC 3077. The colour-colour and colour-magnitude diagrams of the objects are discussed. Many of the objects under consideration, starlike from the ground, are probably dense young star clusters (super star clusters, SSC). Ages spreading over ~4 to ~150Myr are estimated for most of these objects. Sakai and Madore (2001ApJ...555..280S) found enhanced star formation ~30-125Myr ago also in the halo of this galaxy; thus, high star forming activity has occurred within the entire galaxy (centre and halo) since ~130..150Myr. Having ended in the outer regions about 30Myr ago, it is going on near the centre with full vigour.
