The annotated image (00:15 13th April local time at my observatory in Spain) of the minor planet Iris approaching the asterism known as "The Stargate. I will try to image it again tonight if weather permits as it slides past Struve 1659 but it will be at low altitude. The LRGB image is in the previous posting.
