I WAS SO EXCITED LAST NITE!
Set my scope on NGC 7662, knowing from Astronomy Mag. that Comet Encke was nearby. Found a group of stars and then saw the fuzz ball !
Even called a close friend and shouted into the phone, "I think I found a comet!!!!"
Then with further reading and star chart looking and the mention of 7662 being the "Blue Snowball Nebula", and 3 photo's later, I came to the conclusion that I was viewing the Snowball Nebula and not Encke at all.
I was actually sad! Strange, Had my first view of NGC 7662 and was dissapointed I didn't find the comet!
Now, 9hrs. later, I'm much better and shall reval in my first 7662 siteing.
LOOK OUT ENCKE, I'm comin' for ya! Any advice folks?
is in the house!
