Fig. 9


Model fit to the archival photometry, plotted against true anomaly in degrees. Here the photometry is plotted as apparent magnitudes within ρ = 5″ (without correction for observing geometry), as the model includes the geometry (producing “waves” near aphelion due to changing geocentric distance). The three perihelion passages (1996, 2002 and 2009) are plotted separately. The scale across the top of each figure gives the corresponding heliocentric distance (AU) and ΔT (days). The model reproduces all data well except for that within ~ 30° (≈  ±1 month) of perihelion, where there is enhanced activity.

This figure is made of several images, please see below:
