                                     St. Lambert, P.Q.
                                     January 8, 1964

Dear Mr. Gallant,

       The National Office of the R.A.S.C. informs me that
you have requested information on comets visible during
1964.  I regret that I have very little information on
the visibility of periodic comets during 1964 at this time.
I depend on the "Periodic Comets" section in the Handbook of
the British Astronomical Association for my information,
but neither I nor my friends in Montreal have received
copies of the 1964 issue as yet.

       As far as I know, no naked-eye comets are scheduled
to appear during 1964, although Comet Encke may be visible
in small telescopes later in the year.

       Since new comes may appear at any time, the "Comet
and Nova Section" has been formed to encourage observers
to search for new objects and to make useful observations
when one is found.  Enclosed is a copy of C & N Form #1
explaining this programme.  If you would care to take part,
please let me know and I will send you report and instruction
forms.
       I send out announcements whenever a bright new object
becomes visible, and I have added your name to my mailing
list.

                                    Good observing,


                                    Jim Low
