M15 is well placed for observation

2014 Aug 15

The globular cluster M15 (NGC 7078) in Pegasus will be well placed for observation, culminating at around midnight local time.

At magnitude 6.2, M15 is quite faint, and certainly not visible to the naked eye, but can be viewed through a pair of binoculars or small telescope.

At a declination of +12°10′ , it is seen to best advantage in the northern hemisphere.
