The Coma Berenices Star Cluster

Post by Christopher K. » May 14th, 2018, 8:24 am

This star cluster can be seen tonight at 9:30pm, about eighty degrees up in the southeast. The brighter components actually occupy a two-and-a-half-degree field-of-view and are easily spotted in skies with natural contrast.

Has it not received enough attention? Very well, then...HRPO's next viewing session (on 11 May) will have the Coma Berenices Cluster as a planned telescope target from 9:30pm to 11pm. It's a magnitude 1.8 object with the catalog designation Melotte 111.
