Philosophical Transactions/Volume 84/An Account of the Discovery of a Comet
Read November 7, 1793.
Last night I discovered a comet near 1st (δ) Ophiuchi, but clouds covering the part of the heavens where it was, its place could not be obtained.
My brother has just now (7 o'clock) determined its situation, as follows.
The comet precedes the 1st (δ) Ophiuchi 6′ 34″ in time, and is 1° 25′ more north that that star.
I remain, Sir, &c.
