A cablegram from Stromgren, South Africa, received yesterday at the University Observatory, reported that Mr. M. W. Reid of the Royal Observatory of the Cape of Good Hope had discovered on December 1 a comet, five degrees north of the bright star. Fomalhaut in the constellation Aquarius. The cablegram did not state the magnitude of the comet but if it attains any great brilliance it will be observable in Cambridge on clear nights, for the constellation Aquarius is on the meridian, due south, at 6 o'clock in the evening. Professor Harlow Shapley states that further details, including the magnitude of the comet, will be reported from South Africa within the next day or two.
