C/2013 R1 (Lovejoy) still out there.

That it is C/2013 R1, whereas Comet ISON was C/2012 S1, tells us that C/2013 R1 was discovered a one year after ISON.

It was actually discovered on September 7, 2013 by Australian amateur astronomer Terry Livejoy, and IT specialist by day.

This is Terry Lovejoy’s 4th comet.

His C/2011 W3 (Lovejoy), only visible, alas in the southern hemisphere, was a doozy!

Terry Lovejoy’s 2011 doozy, C/2011 W3 (Lovejoy) — the ‘great of 2011’, though viewing was restricted to the southern hemisphere.

C/2013 R1, since November 2013, at an apparent magnitude of +5 is in theory naked eye visible.

It is due to perihelion on December 22, 2013.

So it will continue to get brighter.

So if you are pining for poor ISON assuage your sorrows by trying to get a gander at the latest Lovejoy.

We all got up at 4 a.m. to see Comet ISON and the others!

Us getting up that early, especially I, does not happen often.

I knew we were taking a chance. Weather forecasts don’t typically tell you cloud conditions for 4 a.m.

But we went up Prospect Mountain to Ridge Road — where in April we saw Pan-STARRS.

There were breaks in the cloud cover. We could clearly see the Big Dipper and Jupiter.

But the clouds (and possibly fog) was worst low down, by the horizon. So we were foiled. Thwarted.
It was cold too.

We might try again Saturday morning.

But, here is the MAP for New Hampshire for the Comets.
I hand ‘drew’ it for you in PowerPoint.

It is no great secret that I set out to OWN ‘Comet ISON’ when it came to books.

Well check this out. This is what Amazon showed if you did a search on ‘Comet ISON‘ (for books).

#1, #2 & #3.

Didn’t make me rich or famous BUT as achievements for a year go, this is far more satisfying, far reaching and fun that serving on some ‘going nowhere‘ town committee.
