Expected thermal lightcurves of the comet 8P/Tuttle at 1.25 mm for different values of the surface emissivity ϵ ranging from 1 (highest, solid red line) to 0.4 (lowest, dashed yellow line). The thermal inertia is I = 0 and the beaming factor η = 0.7. The geometrical configuration is identical to that of the observations of 8P/Tuttle in January 2008.
