     Y. Kozai, Tokyo Astronomical Observatory, telexes that this
comet has been recovered by T. Seki, Geisei, as shown below.  The
image of the comet is very faint, diffuse, with condensation.  The
position is in close agreement with the predictions by G. Sitarski
(1975, Acta Astron. 25, 161; also MPC 4479), Purple Mountain Observatory
(1976, Acta Astron. Sinica 17, 106) and others.

     T. J. Balonek and W. A. Dent, University of Massachusetts, report
the detection of a radio flare in the RS CVn star V711 Tau =
HR 1099.  Observations during Nov. 6.21-6.35 UT with the Haystack
Observatory's 37-m telescope indicated an average flux density
(from four measurements) of 350 +/- 50 mJy at a frequency of 15.5 GHz.

     D. Wills, McDonald Observatory, reports that photometric observations
of Wild's Oct. 27 supernova (IAUC 3297) on Nov. 3.2 UT by R.
Buta and M. McCall with the 91-cm reflector yielded a visual magnitude
of 15.2 +/- 0.1.  Spectrophotometric observations by A. Uomoto,
B. Wills and D. Wills with the 208-cm reflector gave the same magnitude
and confirmed the supernova to be of type I (cf. IAUC 3299).

IAUC 3172, 3225, 3227, 3228, 3229, 3260 and 3288: the name of the
   Perth observer should read J. Johnston, not J. Johnson.
IAUC 3271, line 18: observer Stuart should have initial B.
IAUC 3294, line 5: for  than an active  read  that an active.
IAUC 3295, line 15: S. J. Bus and S. Dunbar should have been mentioned
   as having assisted with the Palomar observation.
IAUC 3296, line 14: for  to 0.01 magnitude  read  to 0.10 magnitude.

1978 November 8                (3302)              Brian G. Marsden
