Not to be confused with the much better-known C/1973 Kohoutek, 75D is a repeat visitor to the inner Solar System, with a period of about 7 years. It was last predicted in 2014, but was not seen, nor was it seen in it's previous approaches in 2007, 2000, or in 1994. Apparitions have been dim, with the brightest being in 1988 at about apparent magnitude 13. The comet was estimated to be 4.6km in diameter.
