Wild Duck Cluster
Messier 11, M11, NGC 6705
Distance: 6,200 ly
A rather dense “open” cluster that looks more like a globular cluster visually.
Apparently it’s called the Wild Duck Cluster because of a V-shaped pattern. I can’t see it. I also thought that it was geese that fly in a v-shaped pattern.
