Faye's Comet.—A telegram from the I.A.U. Bureau, Copenhagen, announced the detection of this comet at Bergedorf. B.Z. No. 33 announces that the plate showing it was exposed for 2½ hours by Dr. Wachmann, Dr. Guyot, and Dr. A. Schwassmann. The position on Aug. 30d 0h 37m 12s U.T. was: R.A. (1932.0) 0h 27m 1.798, N. Decl. 14° 53′ 32.5′, mag. 12.0. The perihelion passage will be about Dec. 5-68. The ephemeris in the B.A.A. Handbook may be used with the following corrections; Sept. 9 + 1m 20s+ 4′, Oct. 11 + 1m 36s + 6′, Nov. 12+1m 27s + 4′. As the comet is approaching the earth until Oct. 22, when its distance is 0.71 units, it is likely to brighten considerably. This is the eleventh observed apparition of the comet. It has only been missed at two returns, in 1903 and 1917.
