Abstract

The newly discovered periodic comet P/2004 A1 (LONEOS) is found to have experienced a recent capture into its present orbit, following a close approach to Saturn in 1992 to within 0.032 AU. This induced orbital change transfered the comet into an orbit tangent to that of Jupiter, which will, after a close passage in 2026 gain control by further decoupling it from the influence of Saturn. A long-term orbital investigation yields support that the comet is on its first sejourn into the inner solar system.
