Over half of these Centres show a definite interest in taking part in this programme, and I have received "search" reports from Montreal and Hamilton, and other observations from Halifax, Niagara Falls, and Winnipeg. I expect more reports from other Centres within the next month. Comet Seki-Lines (1962c) was well observed, although several Centres indicated Weather conditions were not too favourable. Observations will be included on the display. 411 Brixton Avenue Jim Low St. Lambert, P.Q. National Coordinator, Comet & Nova Sec.
