NGC 1647 is a galactic star cluster located four degrees northwest of Aldebaran. It contains about 200 stars across an area larger than the full moon, but the stars themselves are fairly faint, making this primarily an object for telescopes. Under the best viewing conditions sharp-eyed persons might be able to barely make it out with the unaided eye.
