C/1998 QP54 (LONEOS-Tucker)
This image of Comet C/1998 QP54 (LONEOS-Tucker) was obtained on
1998 December 14 with Spacewatch. The image is 3.5 by 3.2
arcminutes on a side with north at the top and west on
the right. This image is the result of co-adding 3 consecutive
images of the comet, shifting each to align the comet itself.
The comet is slightly right of center with a broad fan-shaped
tail extending at least 0.8 arcminutes to the left, from
position angle about 70 degrees to about 120 degrees.
