HOW TO FIND IT:
M19 can be found half way between Epsilon Scorpio and Eta Ophiuchi.
There is a "V" shape grouping of stars pointing right to M19. These stars are made up of 45, 43, 36 and Theta Ophiuchi. Using this grouping to point to M19 will help you avoid confusing it with M62, another cluster found sweeping
the area from Epsilon Scorpio and Mu Ophiuchi. M62 is also closer to Scorpius.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
M19 does not have the perfectly round shape that many globular clusters have. Here is another good globular for you to sketch.
