m28 ngc 6626 globular cluster in sagittarius

Messier 28 (also known as M28 or NGC 6626) is a globular cluster in the constellation Sagittarius. It was discovered by Charles Messier in 1764.

M28 is at a distance of about 18,000 to 19,000 light-years away from Earth. 18 RR Lyrae type variable stars have been observed in this cluster. In 1986, M28 became the first globular cluster where a millisecond pulsar was discovered (by the Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank Observatory).[3]
