Object(s): NGC6992 (Veil Nebula)
Category: Supernova remnant.
Class: 
Constellation: CYG
Data: mag   size 
Position: RA :  DEC :
Description:
The portion of the veil that passes through 52 Cyg was not visible, 
although some nebulosity was suggested around the star. However, the 
"toothbrush" shaped segment NGC6992 was detectable repeatedly with averted 
vision and at times with direct vision. It appeared as an ill-defined,
banana-shaped region of lighter gray on the gray sky background. The "brush" 
portion of the segment to the southeast was clearly discernable from
the overall shape. Not visible at all without OIII.
