M92 is well placed for observation

2014 Jun 12

The globular cluster M92 (NGC 6341) in Hercules will be well placed for observation, culminating at around midnight local time.

At magnitude 6.4, M92 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 +43°08′ , it is seen to best advantage in the northern hemisphere; in fact, it is unobservable from latitudes much south of 26°S.
