Abstract

Photometry on the images of Comet 2P/ Encke will allow us to extract data to analyze in order to find the pole orientation and the rotational period. This presentation will mainly focus on the Photometry that was applied to the reduced CCD images of the comet and briefly cover the produced light curves. More observations and analysis will need to be completed in the next few years to complete the analysis on Comet 2P/Encke.
