Comets - C1999 N2 Lynn
 

Discovery
On July 13th, Australian amateur Daniel Lynn of Kinglake West, Victoria, discovered an 8th-magnitude comet moving rapidly northeast through the constellation Hydra. He was using 10x50 binoculars!

Observations:
Bad weather and work meant the first chance I had to observe this comet was from my backyard on the 21st of July. Conditions weren't ideal - it was the end of twilight and with the 60% full moon in the northwest, the comet was in an area I wasn't too familiar with on the Leo/Sextans border. Anyway after about 15 minutes of star-hopping with my 10x50 binoculars I located the comet near 62 Leonis. The comet was about magnitude 7.
