Comet Gallery

P/2004 F3 (NEAT)

Discovered on 28 March 2004 with the 1.2-m Schmidt at Haleakala, Hawaii, the comet was reported to show a short tail in the discovery announcement in IAUC 8313.

Although quite bright at this apparition, the comet has not yet been found on old image archives. Its perihelion distance is currently 2.9 AU, though before a passage to within 0.37 AU of Jupiter on July 2001 it was somewhat larger at about 3.8 AU and was previously at perihelion in late 1995/ early 1996.
