I have suspected 3 times a very faint glow and one time a very definite
glow when the seeing settles down. I am seeing it in the exact position
every time. I am looking at the exact field of Pal 1, and there are two
stars to the south and at the very edge of the bottom of the field
(north) there are the 2 fainter stars (13.4 and 13.5). In between and
slightly between the 2 northern stars and above them (south). Dana
Lambert also confirms seeing glow at same position. Distance 9.2 kpc
