A new Nebula near phi Virginis

[page 285]

1881 July 27 I found a faint Nebula 1° 48′ north and 5m39s west of φ Virginis (as determined by the aid of the finder). Upon inquiring I found that no nebula was known at that point: On account of its approach to the sun nothing more was done about it until July of 1882 when being certain of its existence I notified Harvard Observatory and Mr. O.C. Wendell very kindly observed it with the 15 inch equatorial, making its mean position for 1882.0:

α =  14h16m19.6s

δ = + 0°  9′ 14′′

He describes it as being »Rather diffuse and faint, but gradually a little brighter in the middle.«

E.E. Barnard.

Nashville Tenn., 1883 January 8.
