Coma expanding but no sign yet of a further outburst. Here is a higher SNR image obtained by Cai Stoddard-Jones along with an image processed close-up version in false colour that reveals an intense condensation travelling outwards towards p.a. 330° approx, the centre of which has displaced 3.0 arcsec. equivalent to 11,500 km or 75 m/s, whereas the outer edge of the near-spherical debris cloud has reached 56,000 km, i.e. a maximum expansion velocity of 360 m/s.
