29p 20130529 miles

Yesterday morning routine monitoring of Comet 29P with the Faulkes telescopes revealed a new outburst, which was also evident in measurements made a day earlier by Juan Lozano (I57) of the Observadores_cometas group. Juan's observations and earlier imaging using Faulkes has narrowed the time of outburst to between May 28.5-30.8. We are scheduling further observations using Faulkes on June 3, 4 and 5 with a view to determining the nature of the outflows within the inner coma and a better estimate of the time of the initial outburst. Observers should be alert for further outbursts especially between the dates, June 8-18. 20130529 Richard Miles
