Some conjecture even that all these suns, with their several systems, our own included, revolve around a common centre that is invisible to us, but which is the actual throne of God; the comets

The most common prefixes for comet
designations are C and P.
At the same time, comet
96P passed through a second NASA missions view: STEREO short for Solar and Terrestrial Relations Observatory also watched the comet
html) captured Comet
73P travelling around the sun with 40 fragments surrounding it.
Every 10 years or so a bright comet
with a prominent tail makes its appearance.
, C/2012 S1 (ISON), is highly unusual in that it comes to the inner solar system for the first time and will skirt around the Sun within less than two solar radii from the Sun's surface on Nov.
The recently discovered object, known as comet
ISON, is due to fly within 1.
We have set a cutoff date of the year 1974 because there is a very strong observational bias in detecting splitting events; splittings and disintegrations of comets
since that year are reported in the Split Comets
List of the International Comet
When a comet
is near the sun, some of its ice melts, which produces its distinctive tail.
73P/Schwassman-Wachmann 3, this body passes near the sun every 5.
