COMET P/2020 V3 (PANSTARRS)

Y. Ramanjooloo, Institute for Astronomy, University of Hawaii, reports the discovery of another comet in 45-s w-band CCD exposures obtained with the Pan-STARRS1 1.8-m Ritchey-Chretien reflector at Haleakala, Hawaii, on Nov. 10 (discovery observations tabulated below). There was a faint, straight 3".2 tail extending towards p.a. 281 degrees; the very condensed coma had size 2".4 in 1".3 seeing.

COMET P/2019 T6 (PANSTARRS)
R. Weryk, Institute for Astronomy, University of Hawaii, reports that another comet has been discovered on images taken with the Pan-STARRS2 0.5-m reflector at Haleakala, Hawaii, on Oct. 8.5 UT; he described a condensed coma of diamter 1".8 (in 1".1 seeing), with a broad tail 2" long in p.a. 270 degrees.
