NGC 5927 in the constellation Lupus (the Wolf)

The globular cluster NGC 5927 is located in the southeastern part of the constellation Wolf, at the border to the constellation Norma. In this direction, large amounts of interstellar dust lie in front of the cluster. This causes a distinct reddening of the light. The color index B-V is on average 1.3 mag with a reddening of E(B-V) = 0.45 mag.
