What are these? No sign in SDSS (too weak?)

If you look at the cutouts,
http://legacysurvey.org/viewer/cutouts/?ra=172.6381&dec=16.1487&layer=decals-dr5
you’ll see that it appears in only the first four images – which were all taken on the same night. It’ll be an asteroid, though I didn’t find a match in the JPL small bodies database.

How can I view the cutouts myself? I tried all the buttons when I have marked an object but nothing displays cutouts as in your link.

:slight_smile: The cutouts link is kind of hidden – I should make it more clear. When you click on the map, the popup has links for “Link Here”, “Data”, “Cutout”, “Discuss”, but also the RA,Dec coordinates is a link – that’s the link to the cutouts.

And writing that, I see how silly it is, so I just added a link called “Single Image Cutouts”.

Thanks for the comment!
