(meteorobs) Comet Linear Erupts

January 31, 2002

Greetings Meteor Enthusiasts!

I do not know if everyone on meteorobs is aware, but
Comet C/Linear (2000 WM1) has erupted in a blaze of
astonishment!  Last I knew it was 3rd mag!  

The following link has some information about this
startling event including some observations when you
click the highlighted word "flared":


( I hope the link works! )

Too bad it can't be seen by us northern observers,
though!  Does anyone know whether this comet may be
visible for another "pass"?

Noisy meteors and exploding comets!
