|Title||Paper, figure of nubecula or cloudy stars near the constellation Hydra produced by Mr Aubrey|
|Description||Telescopic observation by John Aubrey and John Hoskins on 27 April 1668. This observation was reported to the meeting of the Royal Society on 30 April 1668 which ordered 'the scheme of it brought in by him' to be registered. This did not happen, as the drawing remains in the classified papers. The observation was mentioned again at the meeting on 18 February 1669, which ordered the account to be registered. This order was followed through as this drawing was copied into the Register Book, without the figurative representation of hydra and cancer. A copy of the Register Book entry can be found at RBC/3/128.|
