Comet West was discovered in photographs by Richard West on August 10, 1975. It reached peak brightness in March 1976. During its peak brightness, observers reported that it was bright enough to study during full daylight. Despite its spectacular appearance, it did't cause much expectation among the popular media. The comet has an estimated orbital period of 558,000 years.

spaceversetm: How long does it take for each planet to go once around the sun? Here’s the orbital period of our solar system’s 8 major planets (how long it takes each to travel around the sun). Their size is to scale and their speed is accurate relative to Earth’s. The repetition of each GIF is proportional to their orbital period. Mercury takes less than 3 months to zoom around Sol, Neptune takes nearly 165 years.

Science Junkie Kepler’s third law (The Law of Harmonies) can be derived from Newton’s laws of motion and the universal law of gravitation. The third law shows that orbital period increases with orbital radius: Science-junkie.tumblr.com

Today the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft will get a closer look at comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, which has an orbital period of 6.45 years and a rotation period of approx. 12.7 hours. It is named after its discoverers, Klim Ivanovych Churyumov and Svetlana Ivanova Gerasimenko. The mission was launched on Mar. 2, 2004. The spacecraft will soon enter into orbit around the comet to study it and identify a suitable landing site for its robot lander, Philae. (Diagram by…
