COMMENTS

This sequence is not well-defined for many reasons (negative years are ill-defined; calendars change often, so when does a year begin?; what does "observed" mean?; what if the comet was observed both at the end of one year and at the beginning of another, as in 1985/1986?; etc.). - N. J. A. Sloane, Jun 24 2007

EXAMPLE
