Best remembered today for the comet that bears his name, Edmond Halley was one of the great scientists of all time. He discovered the proper motion of stars, made important studies of the moon's motion, and his investigations of the Earth's Cited by: A Scale Model for Halley's Comet Suppose we could shrink the nucleus of Halley's Comet down to the size of a real peanut (in the shell, about an inch and a half (4 cm) long). On that scale, what would be the size of other parts of the comet and our solar system at the time of Giotto 's close encounter with the comet in March?

  The plasma surrounding a comet has the interplanetary magnetic field frozen in. The geometric interpretation of this property is considered. The frozen-in character of the magnetic field leads to the draping of magnetic field lines around the inner coma, where, by exclusion of the inner purely cometary ionosphere, a magnetic cavity is formed inside a region .

Halley's Comet or Comet Halley, officially designated 1P/Halley, is a short-period comet visible from Earth every 75–76 years.

Halley is the only known short-period comet that is regularly visible to the naked eye from Earth, and the only naked-eye comet that might appear twice in a human lifetime. Halley last appeared in the inner parts of the Solar System in and will Aphelion: AU. The author points out what we have learnt from observations, during the recent comet Halley return, about two important structural elements of a cometary atmosphere: "jets" and "shells".
