“We've seen these two before. They're the biggest fragments of 73P/Schwassmann Wachmann 3, the famous crumbling comet that passed by Earth in mid-May. Soon after the flyby, comet 73P disppeared into the glare of the sun. Now it's emerging again in southern skies--ideally placed for observers in Australia and New Zealand. “
Dr Tony Phillips,
Please correct the misinformation here. Just because the northern Hemisphere loses sight of something doesn’t mean it has been lost forever. We have never lost sight of this comet and have been observing it for a long time as per this thread http://www.iceinspace.com.au/forum/s...ighlight=comet
Please do not think us southerners are ignorant beasts that do not understand the ways of the universe but we complement it!
You have published many images from us Aussies on Spaceweather and continue to do so I hope despite this email! I personally think that if the site is a global entity that is should resemble that, not with “Now its emerging…..” we have been viewing this comet for a while, please correct your website!
