Some of the code in this class is re-used from the parent Planet class.

Member Function Documentation

virtual QString Comet::getInfoString ( const StelCore core,
const InfoStringGroup &  flags 
) const [virtual]

Get a string with data about the Comet.

Comets support the following InfoStringGroup flags:

  • Name
  • Magnitude
  • RaDec
  • AltAzi
  • Distance
  • PlainText
    Parameters:
    core the StelCore object
    flags a set of InfoStringGroup items to include in the return value.
    Returns:
    a QString containing an HMTL encoded description of the Comet.

Reimplemented from Planet.

double Comet::getSiderealPeriod (  )  const

get sidereal period for minor planet

Reimplemented from Planet.

virtual float Comet::getVMagnitude ( const StelCore core,
bool  withExtinction = false 
) const [virtual]

Reimplemented from Planet.

void Comet::setAbsoluteMagnitudeAndSlope ( double  magnitude,
double  slope 
)

sets absolute magnitude and slope parameter.

These are the parameters in the IAU's two-parameter magnitude system for comets. They are used to calculate the apparent magnitude at different distances from the Sun. They are not used in the same way as the same parameters in MinorPlanet.

void Comet::setSemiMajorAxis ( double  value  ) 

set value for semi-major axis in AU
