Sir

The white cloud like object you saw was in all probability a cluster of stars called
Praesepe in the constellation “Cancer”. to the naked eye it looks like a comet and it may have been hidden by one of the faint clouds often found in our atmosphere and which are not directly visible to the eyes.

Yours very truly
