Photometric observations are shown plotted below. The Rc magnitudes have been corrected to the standard photometric aperture radius of 5.7 arcsec and corrected for heliocentric distance, distance from Earth, and for phase angle assuming a linear coefficient of 0.035 mag/deg. As well as the 7 distinct outbursts with amplitudes ranging from 0.5-2.2 mag detected this apparition, there may be other mini-outbursts that have maintained some low-level activity. Opposition occurs on December 30.
