  • Abstract Secular variations in the absolute brightness of short-period comets were derived on the basis of their maximum apparent magnitudes in individual returns. The present paper deals with all the comets of Jupiter family observed by 31 Dec 1987 in three returns at least. P/Encke, investigated in detail by many authors /1–3/, has not been included. The sample contains 405 observed returns of 61 short-period comets. Relations of the secular fading to the orbital period, perihelion distance… CONTINUE READING
