Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Published comments

E.E. Barnard (1919)

Barnard (Astrophysical Journal, January 1919) notes that "This is a very large region of obscure nebulosity with several darker streaks in it trending northwest. It is partly separated from another starless region lying about two degrees to the west and north. Near the middle of the first of these regions is a small luminous nebula with a faint fan-shaped extension for 10' to the northeast. This is undoubtedly a brighter condensation of the great obscuring mass surrounding it."

E.E. Barnard (1927) - ADC catalogue VII/220A

Note (supplied by Bill Gray, Project Pluto): Irregular; unequally dark; extended SE and NW; this is a very large region of obscure nebulosity with several darker streaks in it trending northwest. It is partly separated from another starless region lying about 2 degrees to the west and north. Near the middle of the first of these regions is a small luminous nebula with a faint fan-shaped extension for 10' to the northeast (B 14). This is undoubtedly a brighter condensation of the great obscuring mass surrounding it. The position of this small nebula is 4h32m20s, N25 30' (1875.0).
