The authors present a catalogue of over one hundred digitised photographic images of Comet Halley obtained during the - apparition. The data were taken using telescopes at Xinglong Station of Beijing Observatory, China, and at Mt. John Observatory, New Zealand. Many activities of the plasma tail, such as jets, kinks, helices, rays, condensations and disconnections were : Zongli Liu, C. Sterken, J. P. de Cuyper. In total there are 30 comets in the book, with 11 of these appearing in the 20th Century. It’s amazing how many times Comet Halley appears throughout the book. Comet Halley appeared in , , , , , and The Atlas of Great Comets contains a great many images of the various comets in both black and white and colour. Throughout the ages, comets, enigmatic and beautiful wandering objects that appear for weeks or months, have alternately fascinated and terrified humankind. The result of five years of careful research, Atlas of Great Comets is a generously illustrated reference on thirty of the greatest comets that Author: Ronald Stoyan, Storm Dunlop.

Halley's Comet or Comet Halley, officially designated 1P/Halley, is a short-period comet visible from Earth every 75–76 years. Halley is the only known short-period comet that is regularly visible to the naked eye from Earth, and the only naked-eye comet that can appear twice in a human lifetime. Halley last appeared in the inner parts of the Solar System in and will next appear in mid.

During the period of apparition of Comet Halley in , a large number of images were taken all over the world. International Halley Watch (IHW) collected a great amount of observational data, and compiled a Documentation of Comet Halley stored on 26 CDROMs, in which 18 CDROMs of large-scale phenomena contain tail images, Genre/Form: Atlases: Additional Physical Format: Atlas of Comet Halley II. xi, p.

The solid curve depicts the 'best fit' current sheet as determined by the spacecraft data. The light-dashed curve represents comet Halley's orbit with each individual DE denoted by an asterisk. Throughout the ages, comets, enigmatic and beautiful wandering objects that appear for weeks or months, have alternately fascinated and terrified humankind. The result of five years of careful research, Atlas of Great Comets is a generously illustrated reference on thirty of the greatest comets that have been witnessed and documented since the Middle Ages.
