Description

Discovered by Michael Giacobini in December 1900 at the Nice observatory, Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner caused some confusion when Ernst Zinner unknowingly observed its return 6.5 years later. The comet’s orbital period was thought to be 6.8 years up until that point. The comet is quite small with a diameter of just 1.24 miles (2 km).
