Re: (IAAC) Visible Comet



Nice one Mark, if the flaming sky ever clears over here I will have a look at it, I was unaware of it's existence until your mail. (The way this is put it could almost be refering to the sky itself, wait! it does!!)

Just wanted all of you to know (If you didn't already), there is a comet in the sky right now visible in 7x50 binoculars as well as my little 3.5 inch reflecting scope.  It is C-2000 WM1 Linear and is located real close to NGC 1060 (I believe it is just east of NGC 1060)
 
I have been watching it for the last couple nights and it is in a new location each night, following it's expected path.
 
 
For me here in Lehigh Acres Florida it pretty much is right overhead and clearly visible.  I am excited because this is the first ever comet I managed to find!!!!!!!!!
 
 
Here is the info on it:
 
Right ascension: 2h 48m 11.2s

Declination: +31 22' 54"

 

I got those off of skymap pro, which is pretty accurate as far as the location goes.

 

Clear Skies!!
