An induced magnetosphere of a comet rotates around the Sun-comet line along with the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) vector. During the Giotto flyby near comet Halley the direction of the IMF changed several times. For this reason, the trajectory of the Giotto spacecraft, being represented in the IMF-related coordinate system, covered rather well the transverse cross section of the comet Halley magnetosphere. As a result, two-dimensional distributions of both the magnetic field and electric… Expand
