Comet and Nova Section -2- Predicting magnitudes for a comets is difficult; observers should expect the actual bright- ness to be somewhat fainter. This comet should, however, be visible irs six-inch or larger telescopes. Summary of searches reported during 1964: The following thirteen members made a total of 2,222 searches last year Ä Mrs. E.E.Bridgen, (Vic) 115; Miss Ella Dack (M) 28; Reginald Gallant, 155; David Levy (M) 102; Justin T. Long (M) 228; Jim Low (M) 29; H.N.A. Maclean (NF) 400; George W. Rippen (M) 298; Norman Sylvester (Ham) 400; Alan D. Whitman (Hfx) 48; Vic Williams (M) 285; Miss I.K. Williamson (M) 65; Mrs. K. Zorgo (M) 69. Suggested Reading: Many observers are interested in learning more, through reading, about Comets and Novae, hence a policy of including a section on suggested reading in sante of the Bulletins is being introduced. The following is a list of some interesting articles on Comets and Novae published in the R.A.S.C. JOURNAL and in SKY AND TELESCOPE during the past few years.
