A Once Lost Comet - The 17P/Holmes Comet. The Holmes Comet is a periodic comet that was discovered in 1892 and seen most recently in 2007. Though astronomers knew about the comet, it was lost after its 1906 observation. Comets are sometimes lost because of bad data or when their orbits are altered by gas giants. The Holmes Comet was found again in 1964. Credit: NASA/tamanti/Harvard Cometary Science
