Description: In a region of sky fairly void of stars, this globular cluster 
is very small and quite faint - from a site such as this it is probably 
easy to overlook.  It is circular, brighter at the centre, but I was unable 
to resolve any of the stars in it.  (Not surprising as this is one of the 
furthest globulars associated with our Galaxy known. At a distance of 185, 
000 l.y. from Earth (comparable to the Magellanic clouds), it may in fact 
be extra-galactic.)
