Key Facts

Overview

Comet Bremiker is an object whose orbit does not match any defined comet orbit class. NASA JPL has not classified Bremiker as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.

Bremiker orbits the sun every 104,462 days (286.00 years), coming as close as 1.48 AU and reaching as far as 85.43 AU from the sun. Its orbit is highly elliptical.

No Close Approaches

Bremiker's orbit is AU from Earth's orbit at its closest point. This means that its orbit is relatively close to Earth's orbit.

Orbital simulations conducted by NASA JPL's CNEOS do not show any close approaches to Earth.

Images and Observations

Bremiker's orbit is determined by observations dating back to Oct. 27, 1840. It was last officially observed on Feb. 7, 1841. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 81 observations used to determine its orbit.

Accessibility and Exploration

This comet is not considered a viable target for human exploration by the NHATS study.
