an object mentioned on the PCCP was observed with the 0.7-m f/8 Ritchey Chrétien of the TelescopeLive network in Almeria, Spain (MPC Z08) while this object was still mentioned on the PCCP. We could confirm the cometary appearance of this object and appears as central condensation with a small coma of about 8″ and some hint of a tail in p.a. of 310 degrees. Later this object was assigned as comet C/2020 R4 (ATLAS) via CBET issued on 16 sept. and MPEC S33: COMET C/2020 R4 (ATLAS)
