Globular cluster M19 can be found in the
constellation Ophiuchus. It is situated about 20,000 light-years
from Earth and has a diameter of about 30 light-years. M19 lies
very close to the galactic center, only 4,600 light-years from
it in fact. This is a relatively bright globular cluster, and is
easily identifiable with binoculars. A telescope will reveal the
fact that the cluster has an elliptical shape to it.
