Located in the constellation Gemini, M35 is a
galactic cluster of around 200 stars. This cluster is 2,800
light-years from us and has a diameter of about 24 light-years.
It is believed to be around 110 million years old, which makes
it an intermediate-aged cluster. With an apparent diameter about
the same as the full moon, M35 can easily be seen with the naked
eye near the 3 "foot stars" of the constellation Gemini. It is
best viewed with low-powered optical instruments.
