Description

This object is a globular cluster located in the southern constellation of Ophiuchus, just over 30,000 light years from Earth. The core is a bit elongated in shape, presumably due to gravitational effects from the core of our galaxy. The cluster contains about 150,000 stars and occupies an area about 100 light years across in size.
