I found out about this
object in David Malin's Invisible Universe. Interestingly,
it is unnamed dark nebulosity situated about 2 degrees west and
north of Zeta Scorpii at the bottom of the scorpion's tail. At
-41 degrees declination seeing is very choppy and this is a low
contrast object. North is up.
