Object WJ08B04 – first Russian comet!

On the basis of photographs obtained with the 1.5 meter Maidanak telescope, we can say that our new object WJ08B04 is a comet. With high probability we can say that it is a long- period comet. For these important photographs, I want to thank Artem Novichenko and observer – Alexei Sergeev.

The comet was also photographed by Timur Kryachko. We wait for the morning sky to rise in the USA. We hope the large telescopes here will also confirm our object.

A new interesting object from our observatory

During today’s survey of the sky, we discovered a new object, an interesting object, receiving a NEO rating of 78. It is possible that this is the first Russian comet. We anxiously await either confirming or refuting photographs from the 1.5 meter Maidanak Observatory telescope

To be continued, I hope!
