C/1895 W1 Perrine
more info
C/1895 W1 was discovered on 17 November 1895 by Charles Dillon Perrine (Lick Observatory, California, USA), that is about a month before its perihelion passage, and it was last seen on 10 August 1896 [Kronk, Cometography: Volume 2].
This comet made its closest approach to the Earth on 14 December 1895 (0.794 au), that is 4 days before perihelion passage.
Solutions given here are based on data spanning over 0.726 yr in a range of heliocentric distances from 0.92 au through perihelion (0.192 au) to 4.01 au.
This comet suffers small planetary perturbations during its passage through the planetary system; these perturbations lead to a more tight future orbit with a semimajor axis of about 2,300 au (see future barycentric orbits).
