[BAA-ebulletin 00646] Comet Section newsletter

BAA electronic bulletin
The 2012 January edition of "The Comet's Tale", the newsletter of the
Comet Section, is now available for download on the Section web page at  [5Mb].  This contains a review
of the comets of and observed in 2011, an update of the predictions for
2012, two articles by Roger Dymock and excerpts from BAA Journals of 50
and 100 years ago.  For further updates on comets see the main Section
page at

Updates are likely to be restricted between the end of January and mid
February as communications at my present location are likely to be
disrupted when our communications dome is moved.  I just hope that
another sungrazing comet doesn't arrive during the period.

For UK observers the best comet at the moment is still 2009 P1
(Garradd), which will remain about 7th magnitude for several more
weeks.  Do send in your observations to cometobs [at],
whether they are visual reports or images, or indeed reports of
astrometry or orbit computation.
