- I hope some of you boys and girls got your little chilly bodies out
under the stars this weekend to see Comet C2002 T7. "T7"?, sounds
like a sci-fi movie with Schwartnegger in a walker. Anyway, it was
really neat in the 10". I suspected a bright spot about 5' from the
coma, looking NE from the coma. Sighting the comet in the 25"
confirmed "something" was there. I suspected it to be a very faint
galaxy, but nothing exists in that vacinity. Did anyone image it this
weekend on CCD or...what is that other stuff called?...oh yea, FILM?
Just a couple of questions...
Is this comet 'inbound'?
If so, when will it reach it's closest proximity to

- Comet C2002 T7 LINEAR reaches greatest perihelion on April 22. As a
point of interest, next week the comet will sail within 1/2-degree
east of the bright 2.8m mag star Algenib in the sqare of Pegasus.
It'll be near this star all week. Will that make it easy to find the
comet? Yes. Will it make it easy to see the comet? Probably not!

- I went out last night with my 80mm and looked at Neat. It is a
blurry blob but very obvious. I also used my 7x50 bino for a wide
field view. With these I could make out some traces of a tail. At
one point I was able to make the comet with my naked eye. My kids
where unimpressed hoping for a tail.

- This could turn out to be pretty cool.
