C/1896 V1 Perrine
more info
C/1896 V1 was discovered on 3 November 1896 by Charles Dillon Perrine (Lick Observatory, California, US), that is about 3 months before its perihelion passage, and it was last seen on 6 May 1897 [Kronk, Cometography: Volume 2].
This comet made its closest approach to the Earth on 12 April 1897 (1.14 au), that is a bit more than two months after perihelion passage.
Solutions given here are based on data spanning over 0.504 yr in a range of heliocentric distances from 1.86 au through perihelion (1.063 au) to 1.73 au.
This comet suffers notable planetary perturbations during its passage through the planetary system; these perturbations lead to escape the comet from the planetary zone on hypebolic orbit (see future barycentric orbits).
C/1896 V1 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.
