About Comet LINEAR

The following is a list of comets discovered, co-discovered and re-discovered by the Lincoln Laboratory Near-Earth Asteroid Research project (LINEAR), an Earth-based automated sky survey. In comet nomenclature, the letter before the '/' is either 'C' (a non-periodic comet), 'P' (a periodic comet), 'D' (a comet which has been lost or has disintegrated), 'X' (a comet for which no reliable orbit could be calculated usually historical comets), or 'A' for an object that was mistakenly identified as a comet, but is actually a minor planet.
