Description: Very faint but still clear. Only visible with
averted vision. For the most time only a indefinite blob of
light is visible but at moments of good seeing a fairly sharp-
edged disk could be seen. The middle seems to be somewhat
fainter than the edges - don't give the impression of a ring
though.
