M 92: a globular cluster in Hercules

This is one not the famous Hercules cluster.

A bit fainter, smaller, and farther away than its more famous sibling, sitting on the top of the constellation of Hercules, M 92 is still one of the brightest  and oldest clusters in the Galaxy.  It is 27,000 light years away, extends almost 150 light years in diameter, comprises about a million stars (its mass is 330,000 solar masses).
