Globular Clusters

The local observatory is open to the public on a few evenings a month. Last night was not one of those nights but i thought it was and so turned up and was invited in anyway as a consequence of which received a guided tour of the most spectacular star clusters visible from there.

The arrangement of these ‘globular’ clusters about the galaxy but not within the plane of the milky way is a most mysterious phenomenon.

Dave is a most helpful bloke and he devotes a lot of his time to shareing his knowlege of the heavens with all comers. Bless him.
