An apparently asteroidal object found on CCD images obtained with the 3.5-m f/1 Space Surveillance Telescope on Atom Peak in the White Sands Missile Range, NM, USA, in the course of the LINEAR survey has been found to show cometary appearance by CCD astrometrists elsewhere after the object was posted on the Minor Planet Center's NEOCP and PCCP webpages


S. Foglia writes (on behalf also of L. Buzzi, P. Concari, C. Cremaschini, G.

Galli, and M. Tombelli) that ten stacked images taken on Jan. 28.6 UT with an iTelescope 0.15-m f/7 refractor at Siding Spring reveal a round, compact coma 6" in diameter (FWHM being 30 percent larger than images of nearby stars) with red magnitude 18.2-18.4; twelve stacked follow-up images taken on Jan.

30.7 show a coma of size 6" x 10", elongated toward p.a. 300 (red mag 18.8- 18.9).  K. Sarneczky, Konkoly Observatory, report that twelve stacked 120-s unfiltered CCD images taken with the 0.60-m Schmidt telescope at Piszkesteto, Hungary, on Jan. 28.1 show a condensed, slightly fuzzy coma that is "softer"

than the nearby stars; the R-band magnitude was 18.7 as measured within a circular aperture of radius 5".0.  G-band images taken by W. H. Ryan and E.

V. Ryan on Jan. 30.44-30.46 with the Magdalena Ridge Observatory 2.4-m f/8.9 reflector show a distinct coma and a small tail toward p.a. about 325 deg.

H. Sato, Tokyo, Japan, writes that ten stacked images taken with a 0.61-m

f/6.5 astrograph (+ luminance filter) at the Sierra Remote Observatory, Auberry, CA, USA, on Jan. 31.5 show a strongly condensed coma 8" in diameter with no tail, and  w-band magnitude 18.4 as measured within a circular aperture of radius 5".0.
