The Beehive Cluster/Messier Object 44

The Beehive Cluster/Messier Object 44

This is quickly becoming one of my favorite things to look at during the night. Honestly, it’s better to view it with decent binoculars. The haze around it is really smaller stars in the background and gives you the feeling that the haze is the beehive, and the tiny points of light circling it are busy bees. It’s hard to see without binoculars, but impossible to miss without. Check it out.
