New Comet: C/2013 R1 (LOVEJOY)


Cbet nr. 3649, issued on 2013, September 09, announces the discovery of a new comet (discovery magnitude ~14.4) by Terry Lovejoy on CCD images obtained with a 20-cm f/2.1 Schmidt-Cassegrain reflector on two nights. The new comet has been designated C/2013 R1 (LOVEJOY).

We performed follow-up measurements of this object, while it was still on the neocp. Stacking of 10 unfiltered exposures, 60-sec each, obtained remotely from MPC code Q62 (iTelescope Observatory, Siding Spring) on 2013, September 08.7, through a 0.32-m f/9.0 Ritchey-Chretien + CCD, shows that this object is a comet: sharp central condensation surrounded by a coma about 25" in diameter and a tail about 40" in PA 245.

Yes and it will be aligned with ison,enke,mars and jupiter in november. So ison has not got companions,its a different comet alltogether.....mmmmmmwww.universetoday.com...-104662

Have they figured out it's trajectory yet? I take it that to see it we'll need binos, so it won't be another Hale-Bopp.

Tnx ..

Here is also some info, comet ISON will be closest to Earth on 25 December 2013 ..


Comet C/2013 R1 Lovejoy as seen at astronomical twilight in the morning from the SSO scopes. Click to embiggen.

Terry Lovejoy has done it again, finding his foruth comet, and a bright one at that (or rather it will become a bright one). Currently around magnitude 14 (or maybe a bit brighter) in Monoceros, it will brighten over the next few months to a predicted maximum of magnitude 8 on the 25th of December.

ISON seems to be developing a tail nicely and hasn't hit the frost line yet? These two comets will be in the sky at the same time along with several others, I think this one makes five now. But this one stays between earth and Mars and is coming up from the south to the north and will pass way above the sun by the orbit diagrams. So it may be seen in the Northern hemisphere for a while with the right equipment before it sinks back to the south and leaves the solar system. Looks like it is another long period comet knocked into our neighborhood. I know I posted a video of the 4 comets but can't find it.

Here is C/2013 R1 Lovejoy at this moment, that's constellation Orion ..



Looks like we got us a Comet Convoy…

Well, it seems that the much anticipated Comet ISON will have company when it’s in the sky later this year. Famed comet discoverer Terry Lovejoy has found another comet, and the latest Comet Lovejoy will be joining ISON in the northern sky in December. In fact, they will be keeping each other company from the start of November – a prospect which will have comet observers and astrophotographers alike drooling, I’m sure.

As this chart – created with the fantastic planetarium smartphone App “Sky Safari” shows – at the moment Comet Lovejoy is in the constellation of Monoceros, snuggling up next to Orion in the early morning sky…

Hmm, I must admit, every day I wonder more how long it will take before they discover one heading our way. It could happen tomorrow or hunderds of years from now, but it sure is coming...

Wonder how big this one is, does anyone know how to determine that? Something I noticed on JPL is Two Body Model - T, what is that?

Here is more interesting facts about C/2013 R1 Lovejoy and C/2012 S1 ISON ..

Both comets will pass in same time Earth ecliptic plane ..

Also think we will have stronger seizmic activity and very strong EQ or EQ's in early Nov, probably from 3-8 Nov ..

Possible dangerous area, SE Japan - West Coast - New Zealand ..

It means that the computations of the Comet's orbit are based only on the gravitational influence of the Sun (two objects.....the comet and the Sun), as opposed to including calculations of the perturbing influence of the major planets and asteroids.
