C/1922 U1 Baade
more info
Comet C/1922 U1 was discovered on 19 October 1922 by Walter H.W. Baade (Hamburg Observatory, Bergerdorf, Germany), that is seven days before its perihelion passage, and the comet was last seen on 28 January 1924 [Kronk, Cometography: Volume 3].
This comet made its closest approach to the Earth on 5 October 1922 (1.88 au), that is two weeks before its discovery.
Solution given here is based on data spanning over 1.28 yr in a range of heliocentric distances from 2.260 au through perihelion (2.259 au) to 5.223 au.
This Oort spike comet suffers a moderate planetary perturbations during its passage through the planetary system that lead to escape the comet from the planetary zone on a hyperbolic orbit (see future barycentric orbit).
This comet was in the original sample of 19 comets used by Oort for his hypothesis on LPCs, and according to presented here statistics for previous perihelion passage this comet most probably is dynamically new.
