C/2008 A1 (McNaught)

Comet C/2008 A1 (McNaught)

Another glob-like fuzz ball. This one having a bright pseudo nucleus. I managed 3 observations as it headed west toward the sun. The first on 10/19/09 was around 8 degrees south of zeta Ophiuchi, but still in Scorpius. The second observation was above and just to the right of zeta on 10/25/09.

The last observation was on 10/29/09 and was about halfway between zeta and M10. I could not identify any field stars in any of these drawings from my star maps. I have typically marked the FOV locations of stars on comet-finding maps in my comet files that are similar to my drawings.
