Leonid Elenin Discovered a new comet , P/2011 N01


"G.V.Schiaparelli" Astronomical Observatory

P/2011 N01 was discovered on 2011, Jul. 07.30 by Leonid Elenin and I. Molotov on four 240-s exp. taken with a 0.45-m f/2.8 reflector + CCD from their remote ISON-NM Observatory, New Mexico, USA.

They described it as having a slightly apparent cometary appearance. It was subsequently placed on the NEO Confirmation Page of the Minor Planet Center under the temporary designation MG27A07 and after then, several observatories confirmed the cometary appearance.
