From http://www.rational.com/media/uml/resources/media/ad970805_UML11_Notation2.pdf:

An object diagram is a graph of instances, including objects and data values. A static object diagram
is an instance of a class diagram; it shows a snapshot of the detailed state of a system at a point in
time. The use of object diagrams is fairly limited, mainly to show examples of data structures.

Tools need not support a separate format for object diagrams. Class diagrams can contain objects,
so a class diagram with objects and no classes is an "object diagram."
The phrase is useful, however,
to characterize a particular usage achievable in various ways.
