D. Rankin reported the apparent discovery of a 19th magnitude new comet with a 10" Coma on CCD images obtained with the Mt. Lemmon Survey's 1.5-m reflector on 2020 Nov. 16.5 UT), which was placed on the Minor Planet Center's PCCP webpage. M. Rudenko writes that Rankin notified the MPC shortly thereafter that he suspected this comet to be a recovery presumably of comet P/2005 XA_45.
