Messier 13 - The Great Hercules Cluster
Here is a shot I snapped of the Messier 13 globular cluster on April 18, 2015. M13 is found in the constellation Hercules and is the most famous globular star clusters visible in the Northern Hemisphere. Being so dense and bright it is, at times, just barely naked eye visible. M96 residing at near 22,300 light years distant and has a diameter of 168 light years. I snapped this at Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown, Rhode Island, USA.
