Messier 15 - The Pegasus Globular

Here is a shot I snapped of the Messier 15 globular cluster on June 25, 2015. M15 is found in the constellation Pegasus and is a super old cluster with an estimated age of 12 billion years old. Residing at 33,600 light years distant, M15 has a diameter of 175 light years. The central region of M15 is super bright due to the extreme density of stars potentially orbiting a super massive black hole. I snapped this at Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown, Rhode Island, USA.
