Hello comet world,

I regret to inform you all that William Bradfield, the the legendary comet hunter who discovered all 18 visual comet-bradfields, passed away on June 9 at age 86. He had been suffering from prolonged illness. Rodney Austin informs me of this after which I bring it to you. The world quite does not know about it yet; nothing even on Google. But there has been a discussion going on an Australian forum about it, which confirms the fact:

I have just sent an Obituary write up on William Bradfield to S& and I hope it officially comes up soon.

This is a very tragic loss for our comet community. RIP Bradfield. :-(

Regards, Amar.
