"Comet 21P" captured in It could be the closest thing to a real-life dragon in the night sky, and you can catch its flight with a pair of binoculars. Comet 21 P/Giacobini–Zinner, discovered independently by Michel Giacobini in and Ernst Zinner in , is a Jupiter-family comet with a period of years; its perihelion is at AU and its aphelion is at AU. In September , the comet was visited by the spacecraft ISEE 3, renamed International Cometary Explorer (ICE), which flew by the comet at a distance of . The ‘P’ in the body’s name immediately informs us that 21P/Giacobini-Zinner is a periodic comet, one which we now know orbits the Sun once every years in a path that carries it to within astronomical units (AU) of our parent star at perihelion and out beyond the orbit of Jupiter to AU at aphelion. The comet 21P/Giacobini Zinner (affectionally called just “21P) is gearing up to make a close pass by earth, and if you’re lucky, you might even be able to catch a glimpse of it yourself.
XIII = 21P/Giacobini-Zinner) prompted the initiation of a formal watch on that comet, even as Comet P/Halley was in the first stage of its apparition. All the data collected on P/Giacobini-Zinner and P/Halley have been published on CD-ROM in the Comet Halley Archive (IHW Staff, ; Vol. 24 and Vols. 1 -.

Comet Giacobini-Zinner and the Birth and Return of Jesus Christ.

Get this from a library! An intercomparison of plasma turbulence at three comets: Grigg-Skjellerup, Giacobini-Zinner, and Halley. [Bruce T Tsurutani; K -H Glassmeier; F M Neubauer; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.]. The state of the art in cometary science is reviewed. The subjects discussed include: the orbits and motions of comets, the heads and tails of comets, comet observations, studies of Comets Giacobini-Zinner and Halley, the origin of comets, comets and the solar system, and future efforts in the study of : John C. Brandt, Robert DeWitt Chapman. The Draconid Meteor Shower is the byproduct of Comet Giacobini-Zinner (21P/Giacobini-Zinner), a Jupiter-Family Comet that only takes years to orbit the Sun.
