Spanish-English translation using Google Language Tools:
The globular cluster M 13 is my favorite to teach my friends. When my
friends look through the eyepiece you always hear the cry: Ohh! How
beautiful! No doubt this cluster is of the most beautiful and
impressive from the sky. It is located at a distance of 24,000 light years.
When I look at M 13 I never forget the small galaxy NGC 6027. It’s very nice to
see a galaxy and a globular cluster at a time.
