Description

Messier 9 and Barnard 64

Messier 9 or M9 (also designated NGC 6333) is a globular cluster in the constellation of Ophiuchus, near to the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.

Its distance from Earth is 25,800 light-years. The dusty area to the right is Barnard 64, a dark nebula that is so dense it obscures the light from objects behind.
