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

History and Accurate Positions for the NGC/IC Objects (Corwin 2004)

NGC 1935 is also IC 2126, which see. It is a small HII region in the LMC, found by JH, who measured it in four sweeps. He noted it as part of a group of nebulae and clusters.

Historical observations

John Herschel

John Herschel recorded it as "bright, small, round. One of the chief nuclei or knots of a large irregular cluster nebula." He next saw it as "faint, small, round. The third of a group of four nebulae connected by stars." His next observation saw it as "the second nebula of a group of three." His final observation was recorded as "the first bright nebulous head of a large beautiful irregular cluster of resolved stars." The compound nebula has components NGC 1929, 1934, 1935 and NGC 1936.

Shapley & Lindsay

("A Catalogue of Clusters in the Large Magellanic Cloud", Irish Astronomical Journal, Vol. 6, 1963) give the grouping dimensions of 4.5' x 1.7' and remark "bright loose stars in dense nebulosity."


, it measures 1.1' east-west and 1' north-south. It has a slightly irregular outline, is not elongated and is smooth, showing no structure.

Sulentic & Tifft (1973)

(Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a cluster+nebulosity in the LMC.
