Sometimes in project i see a static variable defined for logger

private final static Logger LOGGER = Logger.getLogger(Something.class);

in some cases i saw static is not being used and defined as

private final Logger LOGGER = Logger.getLogger(Something.class);

what is the difference between the two? Does it makes any difference in cluster and in non-cluster environment?
