Did I really see it?


Recommended Posts

So with the moon being full or near full not sure which I decided to just take a few minutes and see if I could pick out the constellations with my naked eyes. I couldn't see many, but the ones I did guess I got right, then I got out my binocs and started to search for my favorite cluster that Ive found so far M41, just to see if it was visible in full moonlight. I think I caught hints of it but want to be sure, it was near 3 stars that almost seem to point to it and was hard to make out because of said moonlight. The other times Ive seen it in my back yard have been easily made out, with a little averted vision, and some patience. My question is, did I see M41? Or was it a trick of the moonlight?
