Messier 67 (M 67)

Introduction | Map | My Own Observations | References

On this page I collect my observations of the open star cluster M 67 in the constellation Cancer / Crab.

 

Introduction

Cancer / Crab belongs to the constellations that I do not really know. At the bottom left of this constellation, right next to the star alpha Canceri, there is, in addition to the open star cluster M 44, a further, smaller open star cluster called M 67 (15' - 20', according to different authors), which I observed at the end of March 2017 for the first time ever.

Size: 15'/20' (Stoyan/Karkoschka)
Distance: 3000 light years
Rating: ***
