Comet C/2013 V5 (Oukaimeden) was discovered 12. November 2013. One month later, we adde this comet as very interesting object to list of comets for observing program for GLORIA. Reason was a orbit, which shows that this is probably dynamically new comet from Oort cloud, and its activitiy level which suggest chance for nucleusRead more
