Holiday in Tacuarembo – Tacuarembo Travel for The great comets ahead of it in perigee distance are Halley’s Comet in AU, followed by the Great Comet of AU, the Great Comet of AU, the Great Comet of AU, the Great Comet of AD AU, Halley’s Comet in AD and AU, the Comet of AD AU, Hyakutake in AU, the Comet of AD AU, and Halley’s Comet in AU.

When one considers how magniicent the great comets of and were, when they came no closer than AU and AU respectively from Earth, and how stunning Hale-Bopp was, even though it never came closer to Earth than AU, one begins to appreciate the signiicance of the Christ Comet’s high perigee ranking. Moreover, it should be remembered that the Christ Comet actually made two close passes by Earth on August , BC, on its way toward perihelion, it came as close as AU to Earth. A Combination of Close Passes by the Sun and by Earth When one considers the perihelion and perigee distances together, the Christ Comet emerges at the top of the list. Of the great comets with perihelion distances closer than that of the Christ Comet, the one that came nearest to Earth was the Great Comet of Kirch’s Comet it was AU away. The next closest was the Great Comet of , which came to about AU from Earth. Holiday in Tacuarembo – Tacuarembo Travel 2016.
