Abstract / Description:Comet C/2000 WM1 (LINEAR) was
observed at ESO at the time of its closest
approach to the Earth at the beginning of
December 2001 (geocentric distance: 0.32 AU).
The aim of the observations was characterization
of the solid component of the coma. Observations
have been acquired over a wide spectral range,
from the visible to the thermal infrared using
three telescopes simultaneously. In this paper we
discuss the possible discovery of two sublimating
components in the coma, one of them with
scattering properties very different from those
of the ``common'' cometary dust. We provide
evidence that these two components possibly
originate from different kinds of organic
material.
