Abstract: The periodic comet 119P/Parker-Hartley, discovered on March 2, 1989 at Siding Spring, was identified as 1986 TF, an object reported as a minor planet by both the Klet Observatory and Brorfelde. While P. Jensen reported in 1989 that the object is slightly diffuse compared with images of other minor planets, no report came from the Klet Observatory. The re-analysis of plates from the Klet archive shows evident coma indicating cometary activity before perihelion.
