Context. The quasi-Hilda comets (QHCs), being in unstable 3:2 Jovian mean motion resonance, are considered a major cause of temporary satellite capture (TSC) by Jupiter. Though the QHCs may be escaped Hilda asteroids, their origin and nature have not yet been studied in su cient detail. Of particular interest are long TSCs/orbiters. Orbiters n in which at least one full revolution about the planet is completed n are rare astronomical events; only four have been known to occur in the last…

2008 LC18: A potentially unstable Neptune Trojan

The recent discovery of the first Neptune Trojan at the planet's trailing (L5) Lagrange point, 2008 LC18, offers an opportunity to confirm the formation mechanism of a member of this important tracer

Rotation of cometary nuclei: new light curves and an update of the ensemble properties of Jupiter-family comets

We report new lightcurves and phase functions for nine Jupiter-family comets (JFCs). They were observed in the period 2004-2015 with various ground telescopes as part of the Survey of Ensemble

PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF ASTEROIDS IN COMET-LIKE ORBITS IN INFRARED ASTEROID SURVEY CATALOGS

We investigated the population of asteroids in comet-like orbits using available asteroid size and albedo catalogs of data taken with the Infrared Astronomical Satellite, AKARI, and the Wide-field

How to Become a Mini-moon: Some Hints from 2022 NX1

Low-velocity encounters between our planet and any near-Earth object (NEO) in an Earth-like orbit may induce its temporary capture as a mini-moon. Such mini-moon episodes could lead the NEO to

Quasi-Hilda Comet 231P/LINEAR-NEAT: Observation at aphelion using Himalayan Chandra Telescope (HCT)

Comet 231P/LINEAR-NEAT observed around aphelion at 4.88 AU, using 2.0 m Himalayan Chandra Telescope at Mt. Saraswati, Hanle , India. CCD aperture photometry performed and $R_{C}$-band magnitude

Trajectory design strategies applied to temporary comet capture including Poincaré maps and invariant manifolds

Temporary satellite capture (TSC) of Jupiter-family comets has been a focus of investigation within the astronomy community for decades. More recently, TSC has been approached from the perspective of

DETECTION OF COMA ACTIVITY OF THE ACO/QUASI-HILDA OBJECT 212P/2000YN30

The quasi-Hilda object 212P/2000YN30, which has a cometary-like orbit, was found to display a dust tail structure between 2009 January and March. From orbital calculations, it is shown that this

TEMPORARY CAPTURE OF ASTEROIDS BY A PLANET: DEPENDENCE OF PROGRADE/RETROGRADE CAPTURE ON ASTEROIDS’ SEMIMAJOR AXES

We have investigated the dependence of the prograde/retrograde temporary capture of asteroids by a planet on their original heliocentric semimajor axes through analytical arguments and numerical

Capture Statistics of Short-Period Comets: Implications for Comet D/Shoemaker–Levy 9

Abstract Comet D/Shoemaker–Levy 9 orbited Jupiter for decades (P. W. Chodas and D. K. Yeomans 1995, Bull. Am. Astron. Soc. 27, 1111–1112; L. A. M. Benner and W. B. McKinnon 1995, Icarus 118, 155–168)

Temporary Satellite Capture of short-period Jupiter family comets from the perspective of dynamical systems

The Temporary Satellite Capture (TSC) of short-period comets, such as Oterma and Helin-Roman-Crockett, by Jupiter has intrigued astronomers for many years. A widely accepted approach to study TSC is

On the Orbital Evolution and Origin of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9

Abstract Prior to its spectacular plunge into Jupiter, comet P/Shoemaker-Levy 9 revolved about Jupiter as a temporarily captured satellite, the most recent of many comets known to encounter and even

A number of Jupiter family comets such as Otermaand Gehrels 3make a rapid transition from heliocentric orbits outside the orbit of Jupiter to heliocentric orbits inside the orbit of Jupiter and vice

Context. The importance of the Hilda zone is obvious in the main belt asteroid - ecliptic comet relationship. Aims. The inventory of the quasi-Hilda comet group is updated by taking into account the

The Recent Orbital History of Periodic Comet P/Lagerkvist (1996 R2)

Abstract Numerical integrations of 99 orbits centered on that of Comet P/Lagerkvist (P/1996R2) and of the original orbit were made 70 years backward in time and 200 years into the future. The
