P/2010 H2 (Vales) – 8 days after outburst

8 days passed from outburst of P/2010 H2 (Vales). This unusual comet was observed on April 23 with the 2.0-m Faulkes Telescope North. At this time, the comet has a very bright slightly elliptical central region some 4″x4″ in size  and the outer coma extends more then 40″x35″. We will continue observe this comet – perhaps newest member of Hylda-family comets. P/2010 (Vales) reaches perihelion around May 21.
