COMET KILSTON, 1966b


        Since Comet Kilston is not expected to become much brighter than tenth
magnitude, no general Announcement will be sent out.  This note is being sent
to only a few active observers and others with a special interest.

       The following ephemeris was received on IAU Circular No. 1965:

              1966 UT     R.A. (1950)  Dec.        Mag.

       This ephemeris is approximate; do not expect the last two figures of
the positions, on each date, to be correct.  Please include position and mag-
nitude estimates in your reports, for they may be different than the values
predicted.

       Please send copies of your observations, as soon as possible, and let
other members of the R.A.S.C. know about this comet.
