Personal "rating" this aperture: C
Medium-large, uniform (dim) glow very close to
Mu UMa. Ghostly, and at first not readily 
apparent, but easily found with time. Interesting
because of it's closeness to the star. Only 
slightly elongated, but certainly not round, 
almost "shapeless" with ill-defined boundary.
