Enke's komet (label is the rightmost of red orbits)

Enke's Komet was a periodic comet in Earth's solar system. (Star Trek: Enterprise opening credits)

Its orbit could be seen on a German map taken from Meyers Konversations-Lexikon. The term "komet" is German, while Enke seems to be a misspelling of the name of its discoverer, Johann Franz Encke. In English it is better known as Encke's Comet (or Comet Encke).
