Messier 10 (also known as M10 or NGC 6254) is a globular cluster of stars in the equatorial constellation of Ophiuchus.  It has a spatial diameter of 83 light-years and is estimated to be 14,300 light-years away. The cluster is currently located about  (16 kly) from the Galactic Center. It completes an orbit around the Milky Way galaxy about every 140 million years, during which it crosses the plane of the galactic disk every 53 million years. Its rosette orbit has an eccentricity of 0.21.

Messier 9 or M9 (also designated NGC 6333) is a globular cluster in the constellation of Ophiuchus. It was discovered by Charles Messier in 1764.    M9 is one of the nearer globular clusters to the center of the Milky Way Galaxy with a distance of around 5,500 light-years.

Messier 36 (also known as Open Cluster M36, Messier Object 36, Messier 36,M36, or NGC 1960) is an open cluster in the Auriga constellation. It is about 4,100 light years away from Earth and is about 14 light years across. There are at least sixty members in the cluster. The cluster is very similar to the Pleiades cluster (M45), and if it were the same distance from Earth it would be of similar magnitude.

You have lots of months during the year to observe Gemini, one of the brighter constellations of the Zodiac. If you have binoculars and a dark sky, be sure to check out Gemini’s beautiful star cluster, Messier 35, or M35, in western Gemini near the Taurus border. See the sky chart above to locate M35.
