[BAA 00465] The Comet's Tale

BAA electronic bulletin No. 00465  

I have just completed the latest edition of the Comet Section newsletter "The
Comet's Tale" and this is now available on the Section web page at under
Unfortunately as I will soon be departing for the island of South Georgia, I
will not be able to distribute printed copies until March.  If Section members
are able to download it and do not want a printed copy, please let me know as
this will save on printing and postage.

Two moderately bright comets are observable in the morning sky, but at 10th
magnitude will not be immediately obvious.  Finder charts for 81P/Wild are
available at  and there are
charts for both it and 2007 Q3 at
