She double checked the position. Nothing on the charts. Laurie Duncalf peered into the eyepiece again; had the little fuzzball moved? The eastern horizon was just starting to lighten with the first hints of the approaching dawn. She knew time was of the essence. If she didn't get the message off to the Central Bureau of Astronomical Telegrams now, she’d be scooped by another obsessed observer or automated sky survey. Fame could be hers, a celestial body of her own…

It was almost a week before they were certain; the impact of Comet Duncalf would be an extinction level event.
