"NGC 2158"

Have you ever seen NGC 2158?

It is a cluster appearing to be embedded within Messier 35 in Gemini but actually is much further away from Earth. Looking off to the side of the M35 cluster with an ST-80, member Pakarinen (Olen) was able to detect it's ghostly presence last October 12th (2020). Given that we have gone full circle since last year, Gemini is well positioned for observing late in the evening. Give it a shot and see if you can find it. Congratulations Olen on winning the VROD for the day.
