Messier 70


Messier 70 (aka M70 or NGC 6681) is a globular cluster of stars in the southern constellation of Sagittarius. It’s about 29,400 light-years away from Earth and roughly 6,500 light-years from the Galactic Center. M70 has undergone core collapse, so it has a very small core radius of 0.22 light-years.
