I found M2 by moving my binoculars from beta Aqr to north.It is seen as a 
round cloud. It seems definitely non-stellar but it is not as obvious as 
M22 or M5.
After observing a number of globular clusters, I conclude that differences
between different globular clusters can be detected with binoculars even
from cities.
