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. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /home/yivumoo/public_html/show_object.php on line 167

Modern observations

Steve Coe

Steve Coe, observing with a 13" f/5.6, notes: "Very faint, pretty small, elongated 2X1 in PA 90 at 135X using the UGC filter. It is near a star marked on Uranometria and is more prominent on the north side of that star."
