Mission 29P Blog 09 November 2022

We are fortunate to have managed a single 60-sec exposure on the 2.0-m Faulkes North today that has revealed the occurrence of a mini-outburst (probably sometime yesterday) ejecting a new coma equivalent to 0.6 times the area of the nucleus. 29P is currently close in the sky to a nearly full Moon making accurate photometry with small scopes difficult.
