List of Comets
Hi there,

Do you know where to find a list of comets that have been visible to the naked eye over the past 60 years?

Many thanks,

Apollo and Aten asteroids; Many of the near Earth, :154: & :153: asteroids are actually burnt-out comets, Serennu Asteroid Ephemeris can list minor planets by speed meaning there are some surprises awaiting most who look them up!
Sedna and Dziewanna are in comet-like orbits, one of which is listed under asteroid data here at Astro-Seek.

Hi IIyyaarr13, comets are not asteroids, meteorites or "shooting stars". They are believed to be huge snowballs :-)
