C/1914 F1 Kritzinger
more info
Comet C/1914 F1 was discovered on 30 March 1914 by Hans Hermann Kritzinger (Bothkamp, Germany), Kronk raported about a prediscovery position taken on 24 March. At the moment of discovery C/1914 F1 was about two months before its perihelion passage, and it was last seen on 14 December 1914. [Kronk, Cometography: Volume 3].
This comet made its closest approach to the Earth on 9 May 1914 (0.495 au), that is almost six weeks after its discovery and almost four weeks before perihelion.
Solutions given here are based on data spanning over 0.707 yr in a range of heliocentric distances from 1.57 au through perihelion (1.20 au) to 2.94 au.
Pure gravitational orbit determined from all available positional measurements (285 observations) give 2a-class orbit, orbit given in Minor Planet Center is 2A class (62 obs. used, almost three months shorter arc of data; see MPC).
It was possible to determine the non-gravitational orbit for C/1914 F1 (preffered orbit), the RMS for NG orbit decreases (from 3.33 arcsec to 3.12 arcs) and some trends in O-C disappears (see figure). According to this model original semimajor axis of C/2014 F1 is about 1670 au.
This comet suffers significant planetary perturbations during its passage through the planetary system that lead to a more tight future orbit with semimajor axis of about 700 au (see future barycentric orbits given here for both solutions: pure gravitational and non-gravitational).
