Data: mag 10.0  size 12 x 5
Position: RA 12:36  DEC 27:58
In Coma Berenices, at ~2°E of Gamma Com. The object is so weak in brightness that I distinguish it with many difficulties. I am able to confirm this observation because it is located in an area very low in stars inside Coma Berenices. This made that the object cannot be confused with a very weak star. I note that NGC 4559 is of lengthened form, without more.
