    COMET 1906g (THIELE).—From observations made with the Lick Observatory 12-inch refractor, Messrs. Aitken and Fath have computed a set of parabolic elements for Thiele's comet. These elements, together with an ephemeris extending to January 19, appear in No. 103 of the Lick Observatory Bulletins, and give the time of perihelion passage as 1906 November 21. The comet is at present (January 3) about 5 m. east of: Draconis, and is travelling nearly due east, ts brightness being about onehalf that at the time of discovery (mag. 8.5).
