Mindful of the occasional sightings of venting from geosynchronous
transfer stages and other high-altitude objects, I thought it
would be worth passing this observation along for consideration by

On October 22nd, around 02:00 UT I observed the open cluster M 35 in Gemini
with my 10 inch f/4.5 Dobson. About half a degree west of it I saw a fuzzy
patch that looked like a pretty bright nebulous object. But my computer
program (Voyager II for the Mac with the GSC CD) does not show any object
there. I do not have Uranometria, and the first chance for me to re-observe
the object is on October 26th. Does anybody of you know which objects I may
have observed?
