UK school helps confirm new comet with FTN
Shooter's Hill Campus School, London took up the request for more images and observed the target over their 30 minute session on Faulkes Telescope North. Together with more observations from Nick, a total of 17 images were stacked together and submitted to the Minor Planet Centre in Harvard. On 16th April, three days after it was first seen it was confirmed that this object was indeed a comet.
