Another fine comet...

So today our team picked up the usual round of NEO data from the Minor Planet Centre, and ...well one of them stood out just a bit... most likely, due to the orbit, it was going to be a comet...

So, thanks to a good mate who had time on the scope today, and a student at UCGLAM we managed to get about 40 minutes worth of time imaging it, and was a comet hello to an as yet, un-named new comet..

  1. Little did we know until we ran the orbital calcs on this one, just how amazing a comet it would be!
