COMET C/1995 A1 (JEDICKE)
     The following precise positions have been reported:

R. Jedicke (Kitt Peak).  0.9-m Spacewatch telescope.
T. Kojima (Chiyoda).  0.25-m f/6 reflector.  Communicated by S. Nakano.

     The parabolic orbital elements below are extremely indeterminate,
but the ephemeris should aid further observations.  It is rather probable
that the comet is of short period.

     P. Schmeer, Bischmisheim, Germany, reports his detection of
a rare outburst of this SU UMa-type dwarf nova (cf. IAUC 5369, 5371,
5372, 5378).  Visual magnitude estimates: Jan. 5.73 UT, [13.0 (Schmeer);
10.99, [13.5 (J. E. Bortle, Stormville, NY); 11.73, 11.1 (Schmeer);
11.74, 11.1 (G. Poyner, Birmingham, England); 12.70, 10.8 (L. Szentasko,
Veresegyhaz, Hungary); 12.74, 10.7 (T. Vanmunster, Landen, Belgium).
