NGC 6752 is well placed

2019 Jul 10

Across much of the world the bright globular cluster NGC 6752 in Pavo will be well placed for observation. It will reach its highest point in the sky at around midnight local time.

At a declination of -59°58', it is easiest to see from the southern hemisphere but cannot be seen from latitudes much north of 10°N.

From London, it will not be observable because it will lie so far south that it never rises above the horizon.

At magnitude 6.3, NGC6752 is quite faint, and certainly not visible to the naked eye, but can be viewed through a pair of binoculars or small telescope.

The position of NGC6752 is as follows:

Object Right Ascension Declination Constellation Magnitude Angular Size
NGC6752 19h10m50s -59°58' Pavo 6.3 20'24"

The coordinates above are given in J2000.0.
