New Southern Comet

Not sure if this has been reported here or not, apologies if it has.
I have just seen that Terry Lovejoy found a new comet, well done.

Terry that's fantastic stuff, well done mate!

I'm waiting for my membership to the yahoo group to be approved so I can read that posting and get some more info. Great to think that amateur guys are still making a difference in this field.

Ron I've just clicked on it, it did work ok for me apparently around the same time as you tried.

You have to have a yahoo ID first, log into groups, then click the link again and it will get you to main page of that group. You do then have to join that individual group, but it does all appear to be working ok so far.

Thanks guys I found the new comet (C/2007E2) on Thursday morning on images made the same morning. There isn't an orbit yet and so 1) the comet remains unnamed 2) I don't know where and how bright it will get. Fingers crossed it brightens

Here is my post giving some more details of the discovery here:

Congratulations Terry. A very worthwhile result for intelligent long perseverance and effort. Negative results are important but getting a live one is great.

Congratulations Terry. Great news! It must give you great encouragement in what must often be a very frustating and exhausting search!
