Group Description

Please Note:
Membership is restricted to ASV Members only.
Applicants must disclose their membership number when applying for membership to this group.


This page has been designed for members of the Astronomical Society of Victoria Inc Comet Section, to submit reports and images, and communicate with other Comet Section members.
As a member, you will receive regular bulletins on new comets, updates on new discoveries, new cometary outbursts, and any news of interest.
Bulletins will include an easy to read finder chart, and handy hints on observation.
Membership to the ASV Comet Section is open to all ASV members, and caters for all levels of experience.
New comet discoveries of amateur interest, will be communicated to members within 24 hours of my notification.
Members are encouraged to post their reports to the group page.
Amateur reports are sought after by the many Cometary groups worldwide.
The Comet Section has contributed many reports/images to the following:

German Comet Section
BAA Comet Section
Seiichi Yoshida Comet Page
Comet Chasing (Skyhound)

(COBS) Comet Observation Database

With the observers permission, reports will be forwarded on by me, crediting the observer, and the ASV Comet section.

The group page is also a place to obtain information on current meteor showers.

The Comet section may get together occasionally to observe at the LMDSS, and other dark sky locations.
Section meetings may be held occasionally, the dates will be communicated on this forum.
