The second half of Tom Polakis’ globular cluster marathon begins with Omega Centauri (NGC 5139), the sky’s brightest such object.
Daniel Verschatse
In the March 2014 issue of Astronomy, I challenged readers with the question, “How many globular clusters can you see in might night?” Taking the Messier marathon as inspiration, I made a list of 109 globular clusters to track down in a single night in March. My list of objects is in the PDF below. I observed 105 of the 109 and considered that a great success. How many can you spot?
