Description

Messier 92 is a globular cluster of stars in the northern constellation of Hercules. It is about 26,700 light-years away from the solar system. It is one of the brighter of its sort in apparent magnitude in the northern hemisphere and in its absolute magnitude in the galaxy, but it is often overlooked by amateur astronomers due to angular proximity to dazzling cluster Messier 13, about 20% closer. It is visible to the naked eye under very good conditions.

It is also one of the galaxy's oldest clusters.
