1 $r_{\rm h}$is the heliocentric distance adopted for the analysis (see Sect. 2.4 for the adopted criteria). ``I'' and ``O'' refer to whether the comet was inbound (pre-perihelion) or outbound (post-perihelion). Appearance (S - stellar, A - active, N - not detected) is the same indicated in Table 1. q and a are the present perihelion distance and semi-major axis, respectively (derived from the JPL Horizon Data Base).
