I did not believe my luck finding the Leo triplet in such bad light pollution, but I suppose my eyes could be better than I had thought. Inspired, I decided to check out the other group of galaxies in Leo, closer to the center of his belly. That's where I found M95. A small, nearly imperceptible smudge of galactic light.
