1. 1918PLicO..13....9C
Re:NGC 6440
A bright, very compact cluster, about 1.5' in diameter. There are distinct
traces of spiral formation, so much so that it was at first thought to be a
spiral nebula when found near the edge of a plate of a neighboring region.
Cf. Publ. Astr. Soc. Pac., 30, 161, 1918.
