Object name: NGC6535
NGC 6535 is a rather obscure globular star cluster in Serpens Cauda. It is located about 22,200 light-years from earth but only 12,700 light-years from the center of the galaxy. Globular clusters orbit our galaxy in mostly highly elliptical galaxy spending most of the lives far from the center of the galaxy. But NGC 6535 is currently in the part of its orbit that carries it into the region of the galaxy's core. It is classed class XI on a scale in which type I is most condensed and XII least concentrated. One as loose as NGC 6535 could be mistaken for a dense open cluster such as M 11. The cluster was discovered by John Hind on April 26, 1852 using a 7" refractor. He only found 4 NGC objects but one of them is NGC 1555 Hind's Variable Nebula.
