The only ancient text to report this comet is the Han shu (100). It says this “broom star” appeared in the northwest sometime during the month of -146 October 12 to November 10.
H.H. Kritzinger (1908) suggested this comet might be a previous apparition of C/1858 L1 on the evidence that it was in the same area of the sky during the same time of year as in 1858. The lack of specific dates and positions make the suggestion very uncertain.
Full moon: October 25
