At night on the 14-th of December, 1942 the author photographed the sky in Cancer with 8" cameras (1 :5) of the 16" refractor of the Abastumani Observatory. On the Golden Iso-Zenith plates (HαD 1400), taken with the exposure time of 2 hours and 30 minutes there was discovered an object of the 9-th magnitude suspected to be a comet. The repeated observation and the examination of sources, being at our disposal made us recognize the object as a new comet. Information was sent to a number of astronomical institutions of the Soviet Union and abroad. Later on the information about the discovery of the new comet was published in the ^Astronomical Circulars No. 11 (February, 1943), published by the Bureau of Astronomical Information of the Academy of Sciences of USSR, where it was designated as Comet 1942 Tevsadse 2. July, 1943
