  • The situation leading to the determination of the Hale-Bopp orbit is discussed, largely in terms of a procedure that generates two sequences of parabolic orbits. The comet is also considered in relation to the problem of the possibility of impact on the earth. The placement of its orbital nodes near the orbits of the earth and Jupiter is clearly an intriguing feature. The role of the prediscovery observation in 1993 is described, as it appeared both as a boon and a burden. Although evidence has… CONTINUE READING
