Messier 92 - The Other Hercules Cluster
Here is a shot I snapped of the Messier 92 globular cluster on April 19, 2015. M92 is found in the constellation Hercules and is one of the brighter globular star clusters visible in the Northern Hemisphere making it, at times, just barely naked eye visible. M96 residing at near 26,700 light years distant and has a diameter of 109 light years. I snapped this at Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown, Rhode Island, USA.
