Post subject:  First UK sighting of Comet ISON - Kelling Heath

Below is the log of probably the first UK sighting of C. ISON. It was seen by Andrew Robertson at the Kelling Heath Star Party on the Sunday night/Monday morning using a 22 inch Dobsonian. He estimated it around 11 to 12th magnitude. Star A is 11.2mag. It was witnessed by Owen Brazell and Gain Lee (of the Black Paramount fame). Andrew Robertson is one of the country's top visual observers and is an expat Lancastrian now living in Norfolk.
