Our catalog of comets counts right now 91 objects. The catalog includes all the comets that are bright enough to be visible to the naked eye or with the help of binoculars and telescopes. We also track many interesting comets that right now are very faint, but which will become brighter in the future, as they approach their perihelion. One of these comets is the famous Halley's Comet which will become visible again in the year 2061.

Click on the thumbnails below to view additional information about each comet like: physical data, real time finder charts, ephemeris, orbital elements and predicted light curves. As usual with comets, please keep in mind that their brightness is very difficult to predict because these objects have a very dynamic surface behavior; for this reason the magnitude indicated here, computed through mathematical models, is just an approximation and could be quite different from the real value.
