Object name: PAL5
Palomar 5 is located about 61,000 light-years from earth and 75,000 light-years from the center of our galaxy. We see it in the constellation of Serpens Caput. Palomar 5 was discovered twice. First in 1950 by Walter Baade then in 1955 by A.G. Wilson. Wilson gave it the rather useless name of the Serpens Globular Cluster as if it was the only such cluster in the constellation, the others are all larger, brighter and with more stars including M5 only 2 degrees to the north. Maybe Serpens Least Globular Cluster would be a better name. Still, it was named Serpens Dwarf by some who thought it a dwarf galaxy rather than a globular cluster. The UGC says "Resolved dwarf -- Very uncertain diameter values". The CGCG and MCG also list it as a galaxy.
