Good dark void in a very thick galactic star field, a nearly starless area about 15' in diameter with two stars noted against it, a little larger N-S with an extension off the NW corner to the west, similar in size and opacity to the nearby B93 located 20' east

Barnard has found several objects which he believes to be due to an absorption medium, one at 18h7m, S. 18°15' especially remarkable.

Black spot, 15' N and S, 9' E and W. This black spot, known to me in my early days of comet seeking, is very sharply defined on its east edge but less definite on the west. There is a twelfth-magnitude star near the middle with several other small stars (see ibid., 38, 496, 1913, Plate XX, for an account of this remarkable object)."
