The comets of 2002 (Part 2)

This is the second part of the thirteenth report in the annual series which gives for each comet: the discovery details, orbital data and general information, magnitude parameters and BAA Comet Section observations. The year was somewhat unusual with several bright comets. Further details of the analysis techniques used in this report are given in an earlier paper.  Ephemerides for the comets described in this report can be generated from the JPL Small-Body Database Browser.
