MPEC 2021-T206

M. Micheli reports detecting cometary activity in A/2021 G2 in exposures
taken by Southern Astrophysical Research Telescope (I33) on Sep. 29 UT. He
notes a 7".8 asymmetrical coma towards p.a. ~315 degs. Earlier reports noted
activity of this object when it was on the comet confirmation website:

auch CBET 5057:
Further to CBET 4988, the reports of cometary activity listed therein
have been confirmed. C. Holt, University of Maryland, writes that 120-s CCD
exposures taken on Sept. 29 using the Goodman spectrograph's blue camera on
the 4.1-m SOAR telescope at Cerro Pachon in Chile (using AEON queued mode) in
1".5 seeing, and measured by M. Micheli, show a condensed coma of size 7".8,
being slightly asymmetric toward p.a. about 315 degrees; the total magnitude
was measured to be 19.2 using an aperture of size 5" in the g-band.
