This object was discovered in 1978 and described as "diffuse object of
uncertain nature," with dimension and vrightness measured as given above,
described as a circular object. Suspicion was given that this might be a
globular cluster similar to Liller 1 or
(Terzan et.al 1980).
It was also listed as presumable globular cluster in
