Hi all.

I see on the CBAT comet page
http://cfa-www.harvard.edu/iau/Ephemerides/Comets/
that the LINEAR survey has picked up another new comet. (2002 O7) The predictions are that this one will also be a good one for small telescopes from the middle of next year. Unfortunately when at its brightest the comet will be on the far side of the sun and so difficult to observe, however northern hemisphere observers should get good views during June and July before the comet disappears into the evening twilight.

Cheers,

Maurice
