COMETS P/2018 P1 AND P/2018 P2
     Further to CBETs 4538 and 4539, M. Micheli reports that both comets
P/2018 P1 and P/2018 P2 were observed upon his request with the 1.0-m OASI
telescope at Nova Itacuruba, Brazil; for both objects, a set of six unfiltered
100-s CCD exposures were taken by F. Monteiro.  P/2010 A1 is clearly active,
displaying a coma and a tail about 10" long in p.a. of about 260 degrees.
P/2001 T3 also appears diffuse, but fainter; there may be a hint of a tail
extension towards p.a. about 250 degrees,
