Job 9:9

Job 9:9-10
9 He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion,
the Pleiades and the constellations of the south.
10 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,
miracles that cannot be counted.

Springtime Globular Clusters

The springtime sky is loaded with globular clusters.  I've taken a few pictures over the last couple of months, and instead of writing a separate post for each glob, I decided I'd do a  composite of 6 globular clusters and write one post covering them all.  To many, globulars look the same, and this way, I have 6 clusters placed side-by-side so you can compare them easier.

These are cropped from larger images taken during the springtime months.

M3 is located in the constellation Canes Venatici
M5 is located in Serpens
M10 is in Ophiuchus
M12 is also in Ophiuchus
M13 is the Great Hercules Cluster
M92 is also in Hercules.
