A periodic comet may put on a fine show for northern hemisphere viewers over the next few months.

Comet Giacobini-Zinner, a fairly frequent visitor to the inner solar system, was captured by the Kitt Peak meter telescope on Halloween Night (UT November 1st, from to ).

North is up with east to the left. "Comet 21P" captured in It could be the closest thing to a real-life dragon in the night sky, and you can catch its flight with a pair of binoculars.

Comet 21 P/Giacobini–Zinner, discovered independently by Michel Giacobini in and Ernst Zinner inis a Jupiter-family comet with a period of years; its perihelion is at AU and its aphelion is at AU.

In Septemberthe comet was visited by the spacecraft ISEE 3, renamed International Cometary Explorer (ICE), which flew by the comet at a distance of. The ‘P’ in the body’s name immediately informs us that 21P/Giacobini-Zinner is a periodic comet, one which we now know orbits the Sun once every years in a path that carries it to within astronomical units (AU) of our parent star at perihelion and out beyond the orbit of Jupiter to AU at aphelion.

The comet 21P/Giacobini Zinner (affectionally called just “21P) is gearing up to make a close pass by earth, and if you’re lucky, you might even be able to catch a glimpse of it yourself.

Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner was discovered by Giacobini in and recovered by Zinner in and it has an orbital period of years.

The comet is the parent of the Draconid meteor shower which peaks around October 8th and so this year it will be possible to observe both the parent comet and its meteoritic debris.
