A schematic drawing of a comet is included to show the structure of the nucleus, coma, dust tail, ion tail, and natural hydrogen cloud. A joint observatory for cometary research, located in New Mexico, is described. Observations of magnetic fields in comets are analyzed. Infrared spectral observations of comet structure in the 10 micron atmospheric window are reported.
