Is the January comet (Current) data published? I was interested in this new discovery in the morning sky.

Hi Owen,

There has been a delay due to a technical issue. It will be ready in a few hours. Which comet are you interested in?
C/2018 Y1 Iwamaoto - I have added it anyway through the MPC data and the Supplemental data so should be OK now.

Hello Owen,

Keep in mind that adding the orbit doesn't get you an accurate magnitude and coma diameter, which is why it is so useful to have the comets curated. I did update the current comets earlier today, so the data should be available now.
yes I am aware of that but it was all I had :-)
