C/2013 H2 Boattini
more info
Comet C/2013 H2 was discovered on 22 April 2013 by Andrea Boattini with Catalina Sky Survey, that is 9 months before its perihelion passage. This comet was observed during three oppositions until 11 June 2015.
Comet had its closest approaches to the Earth on 3 June 2013 (6.672 au), about 1.5 month after discovery; however, and in the next oppositions it approached the Earth at the similar distance on 10 May 2014 (6.700 au), 3.5 months after perihelion passage.
Solution given here is based on data spanning over 2.14 yr in a range of heliocentric distances: 7.70 au – 7.499 au (perihelion) – 8.13 au.
This comet (original semimajor axis a bit shorter than 10000 au) suffers insignificant planetary perturbations during its passage through the planetary system and its future semimajor axis will be almost unchanged after leaving the planetary zone.
