Although we usually like to post a visual depiction of any comets observed from our little observatory, in the case of Cardinal it would be hard to depict its ghostly, diffuse nature. The comet has a distinctly silver color, and is like a tiny, oblong cloud just a few arc minutes long. It took a star chart with stars down to magnitude 13, and with a plot of the object's exact position, to find the comet. It is moving fast enough through the sky that its motion can be seen after just an hour or so.
Comet Cardinal was discovered on October 1, 2008 by Rob Cardinal of the University of Calgary.
