We report the discovery of a new broad interstellar (or circumstellar) band at 7088.8 ± 2.0 A coincident to within the measurement uncertainties with the strongest band of the anthracene cation (C 14 H 10 + ) as measured in gas-phase laboratory spectroscopy at low temperatures. The band is detected in the line of sight of star Cernis 52, a likely member of the very young star cluster IC 348, and is probably associated with cold absorbing material in an intervening molecular cloud of the Perseus… Expand
