      A survey of current knowledge about Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and their satellites is presented. The best available numerical values are given for physical parameters, including orbital and body properties, atmospheric composition and structure, and photometric parameters. The more acceptable current theories of these bodies are outlined with thorough referencing offering access. Lacroute vous donnera une résumé historique des travaux sur la Carte du Ciel.

      NASA's Swift satellite captured this image of comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3 as it chanced to fly in front of the Ring Nebula. While comet Schwassmann-Wachmann is only about million miles away, the Ring Nebula is about 2, light-years away (12, trillion miles). The image was created with Swift's UVOT telescope.

News Archive (April-May ) May Jim Gifford points out that the main components have moved close enough together now that they can be seen in the same wide binocular field.

      The thermal flux in the μm Q filter band of comet P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 1 was measured some 77 days after the most recent previous eruption, and when the visual magnitude was about Considerations of the eruptive history of the comet, and in particular its tendency to fade to a minimum threshold brightness level between eruptions, suggest that the measurement refers to an essentially. The main comet, which is also the brightest, is fragment C. Photos of Comet Schwassmann-Wachmann 3. This image of p/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3 was obtained with a 12" Lx working at f/7. This is a second exposure taken with a ST6 camera. The exposure was taken on .

73P/Schwassmann–Wachmann, also known as Schwassmann–Wachmann 3, is a periodic comet in the Solar System that is in the process of disintegrating. Starting the perihelion passage the primary component 73P-C was recovered on 28 November near apparent magnitude ; it came to perihelion (closest approach to the Sun) on 16 October Comet Schwassmann–Wachmann 3 Discovered by: Arnold Schwassmann, Arno Arthur.

Comet Schwassmann-Wachmann 1, short-period comet discovered photographically by the German astronomers Friedrich Karl Arnold Schwassmann and Arno Arthur Wachmann on Novem It has one of the most circular orbits of any comet known (eccentricity = ) and remains always between the orbits of Jupiter and Saturn, with an orbital period of years.

Periodic comet Schwassmann-Wachmann I (P/SW-1) has a nearly circular orbit just outside that of Jupiter, with an orbital period of years. It is thought that the outbursts arise from the build-up of internal gas pressure as the heat of the Sun slowly evaporates frozen carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide beneath the blackened crust of the.

Comets are small bodies, but of great cosmic relevance. Given its pristine nature, they may preserve valuable and unique information on thechemical and physical processes that took place in theearly solar system, and that may be occurring in the formation of other planetary systems.

Comet Schwassmann-Wachmann 3 is in the process of disintegrating. Since observers have witnessed the Jupiter family comet fragmenting from it's nucleus.

Orbital periodicity is roughly Schwassmann-Wachmann 1 (q = AU; T J = ) has been categorized as both a Centaur and a Jupiter-family comet depending on the definition used. Other objects caught between these differences in classification methods include Hidalgo which was discovered in and is listed as a Centaur in the JPL Small-Body Database.
