The public is invited to view star cluster M11 at the Missouri University of Science and Technology Observatory. View the Wild Duck Cluster, which is one of the richest and most compact of the known open clusters, containing about 2900 stars. Its name derives from the brighter stars forming a triangle which could resemble a flying flock of ducks (or, from other angles, one swimming duck).
