List of numbered comets

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of periodic comets that were numbered by the Minor Planet Center after having been observed on at least two occasions.[1] As of April 2018 there are 366 numbered comets (1P–366P), most of them being members of the Jupiter-family (JFC). There are also 26 Encke-type comets (ETCs), 14 Halley-type comets (HTCs), 4 Chiron-type comets (CTCs), and one long-period comet (i.e. 153P). Many of these bodies are also near-Earth comets (NECs). In addition, 8 numbered comets are principally classified as minor planets – five main-belt comets, two centaurs (CEN), and one Apollo asteroid – and display characteristics of both an asteroid and a comet.

Occasionally, comets will break up into multiple chunks, as volatiles coming off the comet may cause it to break into two or more pieces. An extreme example of this is 73P/Schwassmann–Wachmann, which broke into over 50 pieces during its 1995 perihelion.

For a larger list of periodic Jupiter-family and Halley-type comets including unnumbered bodies, see list of periodic comets.

73P/Schwassmann–Wachmann[edit]

back to main list

In 1995, comet 73P/Schwassmann–Wachmann, broke up into several pieces and as of its last perihelion date, the pieces numbered at least 67 with 73P/Schwassmann–Wachmann C as the presumed original nucleus. Because of the enormous number, the pieces of it have been compiled into a separate list.[2]

This is a list of 73P/Schwassmann–Wachmann (68 entries) with all its cometary fragments listed at JPL's SBDB (see list).
