Another globular between Ascella and Kaus Australis I
have observed that night, much fainter and smaller
than nearby M-globulars. It seemed to me much brighter
toward center, with slow fade out. Averted vision
improves the sight, making object somewhat larger.
Field of view is filled with many faint stars. Sketch
