TUESDAY, MAY 0, 1882.
Comot A 1882.
Tlio first comet of the year hus
been picked up. C. S. Wells, tlio
assistant at the Dubloy Observatory
at Albany, found the littlo stranger
on Saturday morning, tho 18th, in
tlio constellation Hercules. It is
called a bright comet, has a tail
about fivo minutes in lougth and a
nucleus near equal in sizo to a star
of the eighth magnitude-. It is now
a telescopic comet, and too small to
be visible to the naked oyc, although
it is increasing in size. It was seen
the following Sunday night by Mr.
Wcudcll, as Harvard Collcgo Obser
vatory. It had a circular bend
about half a minute in diameter, n
well-defined nucleus, and its tail was
fiom eight to ten minutes long, a
very rapid growth for two days,
having neaily doubled its lcngbt
since discovery. Its right ascension
just before midnight was 17h. 54m.,
and its declination, 8b" 25' north.
Right ascension t ,'tOiul declination
afford tlio best nwiuiB for determin
ing tho position df the heavenly
bodies, and those who have access to
star maps or charts which acconv
pany the best text books, can find
the exact locality of the comet and
be prepared for a view of it when it
assumes larger dimensions.
The comet is travelling at a rate
that almost takes one breath nwny to
think of it. It was first found m
the constellation Hercules, but it has
now passed into the constellation
Lyra, and is near the blight star
Vega, its present right ascension be
ing 18b. 12m. aud its declination
39 7' north. Hut as.it travels
about two million miles a day, it will
soon leave the domain of Lyra, and
by tho middle of April it will be
found in Draco. The comet does
not reach perihelion until the loth
of June, and there is every prospect
that it will greatly increase in, size
during April and May, will soon be
come visible to the naked eye, and
will be a surperb object in the
heavens. Its specialty is its near
approach to the sun at perihelion,
one astronomer calculating tho dis
tance between the sun and comet as
100,000 miles, and another fixing it
at 10,000,000 miles, while both agree
in thinking- tho approach is a very
nenr one. The comets of 1C80,
1813 and 1880 resembled the present
one in their near approach to the
sun. As we safely passed through
the danger attended upon their nuda
cious invasion of the solar territory
we need have no dread of any catas
trophe from the perihelion of the
new comet. Astronomers ask for
no greater treat than to watch the
effect of the nenr approach of this
body of gossamer lightness to the
mighty sphere thnt rules our system.
There is, therefore, n pleasent pros
pect before us for months to come
in following tlio course of the
new comet, as its nucleus'' increases
in brightness unci its tnil spans the
heavens in mngnillccnt proportions,
and as, obeying the laws that reg
ulate its erratic movements, it seems
to plunge headlong toward the sun.
