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.
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.

, 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.
