Messier 28 (M 28)

Introduction | Map | My Own Photos | My Own Observations | References

On this page I collect my observations of the globular star cluster M 28 in the constellation Sagittarius.

 

Introduction

The globular star cluster M 28 is located in the constellation Sagittarius, and Stoyan writes that it is well worth seeing. To my eyes, it appeared definitely smaller than the nearby M 22.

Size: 5' (Stoyan)
Distance: 20,000 light years (Stoyan)
Rating: ** (Stoyan)
