[BAA-ebulletin 00833] The Comet's Tale

BAA electronic bulletin

The January 2015 edition of the Comet Section Journal "The Comet's
Tale" is now available for download on the Section web page at This has 42 pages of news
and views about comets, with many illustrations. Only a few of the
many images that the Section holds were used, so if you want to see
more visit the Section image archive at The main web page is regularly
updated with all the latest information on comet discoveries and much
more. See

With 2014 Q2 (Lovejoy) now being bright and well-placed many of you
are submitting observations. Very few however are reading the
instructions first! Outline details are at - Visual observations should be
sent to me, ideally in ICQ format so that they can be used for
computer analysis. Images and drawings should be sent to Denis
Buczynski at using the BAA standard convention
for naming the images. Members can also download the draft Section
Guide to Observing Comets from the members section of the main BAA web

I hope you enjoy the read. This is my last issue as I am standing
down as Director of the Section in October, having served for 25
