Corwin's Notes

===== NGC 5415. Swift's position is between two faint galaxies, but he notes that his nebula forms a triangle with two faint stars nearby. This makes his object the preceding and brighter of the two.

Steve's Notes

===== NGC 5415 17.5" (6/7/97): faint, very small, round, 20" diameter, weak concentration. Forms east vertex of a nearly equilateral triangle with two mag 13/14.5 stars ~1.5' W and a similar distance NW.
