Strict Standards: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Seem to me it's a defect on the red photographic plate of the DSS-2 survey: http://server1.sky-map.org/star_dss_ima ... 7&angle=.2
See http://www-gsss.stsci.edu/SkySurveys/SkySurveys.htm for details on DSS
