10th April 2011 Notes: Comet Levy Is Coming

When Comet Elenin passes us later this year, it will be at a distance of  0.233 au. But we have another comet which will pass us at an even closer distance.

Comet P/2006 T1 (Levy) which we last saw in February 1991 will be passing Earth on 20th January 2012 at a closer distance of  0.18 au. After it disappears, we will not see this comet again until well after 2114……. if it ever does come back again.
