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:

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
