    I think it's very likely that Mike saw ETS 6 (23230, 
    94-056A).  It would have been in or near Sextans at 
    about that time.  He wrote to me privately that the
    declination of his object was not as certain as the 
    RA.  ETS 6 was about 3 degrees north of what he wrote
    above.  He watched it for about five minutes.
