Abstract

The existence of the cometopause discovered by Vega-2 plasma observations in comet Halley's coma /1,2/ was recently questioned by Rème et al. /3/ based on their interpretation of Giotto data. This paper discusses the earlier presented Vega-2 observations with some new aspects supporting the existence of a boundary between the solar wind controlled cometosheath and the heavy cometary ion dominated plasma region.
