     H. Kosai, National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, telexes
the photographic discovery of a new comet by Masaru Arai, as
shown below:

M. Arai (Yorii).  Measured by Kosai (assisted by G. Sasaki).  The
  Jan. 5 film, taken with a 0.16-m reflector, is overexposed and
  the image is near the edge of the frame.  The Jan. 6 exposures
  were taken with a 0.30-m hyperboloid astrocamera.  Comet diffuse
  with central condensation.
R. H. McNaught (Siding Spring).  Uppsala Southern Schmidt telescope.
  Comet strongly condensed; 2' coma.
