NGC 6642: Another faintish globular, seemed much more difficult than NGC
6638. It had a wispish look to it and averted vision helped in seeing
some of its structure. There's a nice little asterism a few minutes
south of this glob.
Well, that was it for this night. The weather reports all seem pretty
favourable so I hope to do some more searching & viewing in Sagittarius
tonight. I hope others are planning to partake of its wonders....there
is just sooo much to see!
Clear & steady skies to all and,
Best regards,
