Globular Cluster M15 resides in the constellation Pegasus at a distance of
34,000 LY from Earth.  It contains 550,000 solar masses and is 120 LY across, making it
one of the most centrally condensed clusters known.  So dense, it is thought to contain a
medium size black hole at its center.         (Messier 15)
