Comet C/2017 T1 (Heinze) makes closest approach to Earth.

Comet C/2017 T1 (Heinze) will make its closest approach to the Earth on Friday 5 January 2018 reaching a distance of 0.22 AU from the Earth (0.22 times as far from us as the Sun, or 33 336 000 km). At this distance the comet will not be naked eye visible, having a magnitude of 8.92, which means it should be observable with a good pair of binoculars, and then only in the Northern Hemisphere, as it is currently in the constellation of Lynx, which cannot be seen from south of the Equator.

Image of C/2017 T1 (Heinze) taken on 12 October 2017 using the iTelescope T24 MPC U69 remotely operated telescope at  the Sierra Remote Observatory in California. Image is a composite made of six 60 second exposure. The asteroid is indicated by the arrow.The line passing across the image slightly bellow the comet is a satellite. iTelescope/Marian Urbanic/Fotografický občasník.

C/2017 T1 (Heinze) was discovered on 2 October 2017 by Aren Heinze of the University of Hawaii using the ATLAS 0.5-m f/2 Schmidttelescope at Mauna Loa as part of the Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System (ATLAS) search program. The name C/2017 T1 (Heinze) implies that it is a non-periodic comet (C/) (all comets are, strictly speaking, periodic since they all orbit the Sun, but those with periods longer than 200 years are considered to be non-periodic), that it was the first comet (comet 1) discovered in the first half of October 2017 (period 2017 T) and that it was discovered by the Aren Heinze.

C/2017 T1 (Heinze) has an unknown orbital period and a highly eccentric orbit tilted at an angle of 96.8° to the plain of the Solar System, that brings it to 0.58 AU from the Sun at perihelion (58% of the distance between the Earth and the Sun, inside the orbit of Venus); with its aphelion (distance form the Sun at the furthest point in its orbit) being unknown.

  3. I want to use this opportunity I have to say a big thanks to Dr Great for getting back my ex husband. I'm Linda Gibson from USA, after 7 years of marriage my husband left me for another woman I did whatever I could to get him back but all I did was in vain I was sad, but I didn't lose hope of getting him back because I had faith in God. So I search online on how to get my husband back, and I came across a post of Dr Great of how he helped a lady to get back her ex I felt I should give him a try, I contacted him and told him the pain I was going through, he told me what to do and I did it then he casted a love spell for me 48 hours later my husband called me and told me he is sorry for what he did and that he misses me very much later that day he came back home and he hugged me and that how our relationship became stronger. For the marvelous things Dr Great has done for me it will be unfair for me no to let the whole world know that such a powerful spell caster do live. If you want to get back your ex fast email Dr Great at infinitylovespell@gmail.com
