Abstract


A catalog of cometsthat pass the perihelion in 2016 is made. 69 comets will pass through perihelion in 2016: 17 short-period comets willpass the perihelion for the second time and we need a confirmation of these transits, and the 46 “old” short-periodcomets will pass perihelion for the third and more than three times (including five sungrazers comet - SOHO), fournew hyperbolic comet (three ones have a retrograde motion and one comet has a direct motion by its orbit), two almostparabolic comets with retrograde movement. From the 63 short-period comets 2 ones are lost comets observed in oneappearance only. Data for 69 comets passing perihelion in 2016 are shown.
