                            COMET C/2018 V2 (ATLAS)

     This object was reported as a NEO candidate.  R. Weryk (F51, Nov. 6)
remarked that it appeared to be a comet, based on its ~ 1".8 FWHM compared to
nearby stars' 1".22 +/- 0".04 FWHM.  K. Sarneczky and A. Ordasi (K88) reported
that fifteen stacked 60-s unfiltered CCD on Nov 5.9 showed a starlike nucleus
and a very faint, 5" asymmetric coma towards the north.  R. A. Mastaler (691)
reported a diffuse 10" tail in P.A. ~60 on Nov. 13.  T. H. Bressi (291) noted
a 7" tail in P.A. 45 on Nov. 25.
