pi-Puppids 1901-2100

Meteor activity from the comet 26P, according to the computations made, is to occur from time to time during all the course of 20 and 21 centuries. However, intencity and frequency of the outbursts is variable. In the first half of the 20 century the perihelion of the comet's orbit lies deep inside the Earth's orbit, the distance between two orbit changes in the interval from -0.099 to 0.0154 AU, with the average of 0.120 AU. We found only three cases of shower activity, in 1931 and 1943, with ZHRmax on the level of several meteors.
In the second half of the 20 century the comet's orbit will come close to the Earth's one. While in 1961 the distance is still -0.1631 AU, it diminishes to 0.00030 AU in 1967 and is not going farther -0.0163 AU till the end of the period. As a result, in 1977 and 1982 the shower will produce strong outbursts, storm levels of activity are possible, with high average meteor brightness. Also significant oubursts with ZHRs of several dozens meteors are expected in 1958 and 1992. Weaker activity is likely in 1951, 1980 and 1987.
In the first half of the 21 century the comet's orbit goes away from the Earth's one, but not very far. Until 2050 perihelion it remains within the interval 0.0733 - 0.1129 AU and only in 2050 it increases to 0.2973 AU. Respectively, the showers continues producing outbursts, though not intence as in the second hald of the 20 century. Activity with ZHRmax of the level of 5 to 12 meteors is expected in 2002, 2008 and 2034.
In the second hald of the 21 century the comet's orbit goes father from the Earth's one, to 0.2964 AU in 2056 and 0.1775-0.1945 AU during 2061-2099. However, shower activity remains. Outbursts up to 10-30 meteors on ZHR scale are expected in 2054 and 2089. Lesser activity is likely in 2059, 2084, 2094 and 2099.
