On Halley's Comet as Seen from the Earth


THE following table gives ecliptic coordinates of Halley's comet to two decimal places at intervals of four days through an arc extending from one end to the other of the latus rectum of its orbit. The zero of time is very nearly the moment of perihelion passage, and the figures apply approximately to any return.
