Observers: Brad Hamlin, John Sefick, Dennis Mitchell
Location: Albuquerque Astronomical Society Observatory, New Mexico
Date: July 23, 1996

The telescope was a 16" Astrola 4.5. The camera is a ST-6 exposure time were 5sec and 3 sec respectfully. The second image appears to have a second nucleus. A third image taken 10 minutes later shows it has disappeared. We were wondering if this could have been a flare since this comet is know to be active.

[Note: the second "nucleus" in the second image is an image processing artifact, which is explained in more detail here.]
