Comet Halley Recovered at ESO

16 февраля 1986 г.

The first observation of Comet Halley after its passage behind the Sun was made at ESO La Silla by ESO Staff Astronomer R.M. West and Belgian astronomer H. Debehogne.

The comet was observed just above the eastern horizon, against a bright sky. The magnitude was around 3, approximately as predicted. This early recovery observation is of great importance for the navigation of the five spacecrafts (from ESA, USSR, Japan) which are now heading towards an encounter with Halley in early March.
