Already on Sept. 24, Weryk suggested that the comet may be identical to an apparently asteroidal object of mag 19.7-20.3 discovered on 2006 Oct. 19 on Spacewatch images taken by J. V. Scotti with the Steward Observatory 0.9-m telescope at Kitt Peak; there had been other Spacewatch observations also that same month, back to Oct. 11, and the object was then given the minor-planet designation 2006 UR111 (cf. MPS 184334). Gareth Williams (Minor Planet Center) confirmed the linkage, and it was announced with both designations and then quickly numbered 361P.
The discovery details were announced on CBET 4433.
