On the night of October 1, a supicious object was posted on the NEO confirmation page. When I started imaging it, there were only few observations by the original discoverer (Andrea Boattini at Mt. Lemmon) and some other observatories. Local conditions were only marginally good (no Moon but mediocre seeing) and the body was crossing a star-populated field, so the only images I could take barely allowed to pinpoint is astrometric coordinates. The real cometary nature of this object was then confirmed by several other observers.
