193P/LINEAR-NEAT (0193P)


Type: Periodic Perihelion date: 25 August 2021 Perihelion distance (q): 2.2 Aphelion distance (Q) : 5.0 Period (years): 6.8 Eccentricity (e): 0.39 Inclination (i): 10.7 JPL orbit diagram COBS lightcurve 2001 Q5 = 2007 U2 = 0193P K. J. Lawrence, E. F. Helin, and S. H. Pravdo, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, reported the discovery by the NEAT program of a comet, of 17th magnitude, having a nuclear condensation of diameter about 6" and a 100" tail toward the southwest, on CCD images taken with the 1.2-m Schmidt telescope at Palomar on 28 August 2001. Following posting on the NEO Confirmation Page, T. B. Spahr (Minor Planet Center) identified this object with an object reported as asteroidal by the LINEAR program (first detected on 17 August). The comet was recovered by K. Sarneczky and L. L. Kiss with the 2.3-m reflector at Siding Spring on 21 October 2007.
