Even if the approach of comet C/2011 L4 with the Earth will not be a particularly spectacular event, many of us still hope for this near-sun-comet will be visible even with unprofessional optics, and if very lucky, and to the naked eye.
Comet C/2011 L4 is non-periodic comet. There is a small chance that it could become a Great comet, when it will be near perihelion in March 2013.
Comet C/2011 L4 was opened on 6 June 2011, with the help of telescope Pan-STARRS, located near the summit of Haleakala, Maui (Hawaii).
After the perihelion passage orbital period comets, scientists estimate of approximately 110 000 years. By assumption astronomers, the comet could come from the Oort Cloud, hypothetical spherical region of our Solar System, which is a source of long-period comets. Scientists suggest that the existence of the Oort cloud is not confirmed, but many indirect evidence of its existence.
The Oort cloud is assumed to include two separate areas: the spherical outer Oort cloud and the inner Oort cloud in the shape of a disk. Objects in the Oort cloud largely composed of water, ammonia and methane ice. Astronomers believe that the objects that make up the Oort cloud, formed near the Sun and were scattered far into space by the gravitational effects of the giant planets in the early development of the Solar system.
