Subject: ASO Comet Tables, Summaries of Physical Parameters Sent: Friday, April 16, 2010 02:03:58 From: P. Clay Sherrod (firstname.lastname@example.org) For some time, other projects have kept us from updating our Comet Tables on the ASO website; starting last week all current comets are once again being updated as targeted for both astrometry and physical characteristics; the tables are composed in easy-to-reference descriptions of each comet as it is completed nightly during astrometric observations. Tail, head, condensation and general relevant descriptions are given for comets to magnitude 20. Clicking on each comet (blue highlighted field) will open the history of observation for each object, a verbal description (not code) as well as provide any photo documentation of the target for a given night. Comets will be updated (and added in the case of new ones) as they are monitored each night. The updates should appear by 10:00 UT each day, conditions permitting. The general ASO link it: http://www.arksky.org/ On which the left directory will guide you to the comets and other links. The direct link to the comet tables is: http://www.arksky.org/php/ctable.php The ASO Comet Table is designed particularly for reference and teaching applications so that educators and comet enthusiasts/researchers can have a very quick reference for any particular comet as up to date as possible.
