Description:
This is a nice edge on spiral.  It appeared almost round and was bisected by
a very distinct dark lane.  The lane was a consistent thickness through the 
brighter central portion of the galaxy and then seemed to broaden as it neared
either edge.  A sketch should be available by 9-23-99 at:
