M10 Globular Star Cluster


M10 Globular Star Cluster

M10 is a 6th magnitude globular star cluster located in a region of the sky in Ophiuchus that is relatively rich in globular clusters. It is only about 3.4 degrees away from the nearby M12 globular cluster. Both of these globular clusters were discovered by Charles Messier in May 1764.
