  Abstract. We compute masses and densities for 10 periodic comets with known sizes: 1P/Halley, 2P/Encke, 6P/d'Arrest, 9P/Tempel 1, 10P/Tempel 2, 19P/Borrelly, 2 Coma morphology of Jupiter-family comets Coma morphology of Jupiter-family comets Farnham, Tony L. We present a general review of cometary coma morphology, with specific reference to how it used in studies of Jupiter-family comets. We introduce the most common features that are seen in gas and dust observations, and summarize of how they are used to infer the properties of

  4 The Meteoroid Environment and Its Effects on Spacecraft. BACKGROUND. Meteoroids are small, solid particles, formally defined by the International Astronomical Union as being considerably larger than an atom or molecule and smaller than an asteroid. 1 Meteoroids are generated mainly from collisions between asteroids and the decay of comets, although a small percentage may originate from   Comet nucleus Last updated Septem The nucleus of Comet Tempel The nucleus is the solid, central part of a comet, popularly termed a dirty snowball or an icy dirtball.A cometary nucleus is composed of rock, dust, and frozen heated by the Sun, the gases sublimate and produce an atmosphere surrounding the nucleus known as the coma.

the variability in brightness of 2P/Encke: Particles of 2P/Encke might be in some way polarised, being thin flat discs always keeping their plane unchanged, so that they looked dim when seen edgeways, bright when seen squarely.

We observed Comet 9P/Tempel 1, target of the late lamented Space Technology 4/Champollion mission, in December, and February, and obtained a mean absolute R magnitude of +/- The majority of comets that become available for remote sensing can be placed into one of two dynamical groups: (1) Ecliptic comets, such as the Jupiter-family comets (JFCs) and 2P/Encke (the subject of our study), which originate principally from the scattered Kuiper disk and have small orbital inclinations, and (2) nearly isotropic OCCs 1.

Introduction. Thanks to new technology it is now possible to send spacecraft to meet cometary nuclei.
