Data: mag   size 
Position: RA :  DEC :
An extremely small cluster. I would have never recognized it, but for the obvious
asterisms nearby. Near phi Aur is a V-shpaed asterism of 7 stars. Off the point
of this is a small triangle. This is the cluster. There was a hint of very faint 
stars with averted vision, but this might have been imagination.
