Find/Identify

Find: M 14 in Ophiuchus/Serpent Bearer is located to the left of the connecting line between Sabik and Cebalrai (about one third down from Cebalrai; see sky map above)

Identify: Since there is no other globular star cluster in the vicinity, the identification of M 14 should not be a problem.
