Comet Lovejoy C/2017 E4. 
2017 04 05 ut ~095200.
Stack of 70 x 10 sec.
Short break in the middle from passing clouds.
20x30 arc min frame so tail is longer than 30 arc min and coma is 4.5 arc min wide.

I049742 from Potential Comet Confirmation Page at the Minor Planet Center. Each frame is a stack of 20x2 min images stacked on the motion vector of this new object. In the fifth frame it is clear of background stars and clearly shows a teardrop shaped coma and short tail about 17 arc sec long oriented at about PA 303. Images by D. T. Durig and P. S. Hearn at the Cordell-Lorenz Observatory, The University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee, USA. OBS CODE 850.
