Explore 11 spring binocular gems

Grab your binoculars and peruse a globular cluster, double stars, and lots of galaxies.
Leo Trio
Spiral galaxies M65 (lower right), M66 (bottom center), and NGC 3628 are visible through large binoculars from a dark observing site. The Leo Trio lies in the constellation Leo the Lion.

In this article, I’ll examine some of them as well as check out other spring celestial targets much closer to home.
