Saturn in the south around 1.30 this morning was a handy pointer to the great Sagittarius globular M22. At magnitude 5.1 it stands out fairly well and is pretty big too - larger than the full moon allegedly.
M28 at magnitude 6.9 was just visible to the lower right.
The gibbous Moon chasing things around didn't help the visibility which is not good at this time of year anyway.
A look to the west revealed Arcturus shining centre-stage with Cor Coroli the only visible bright star to its right and at the same elevation. Split the distance and there is another fine globular M3 which some say is the finest in the sky.
I had an email from the BAA this morning - NLC's were seen by some last night - anyone see them locally?
