We are at today at a minimum distance between the comet and the Earth
of 0,252 A.U..for the 15 october and a MOID of around 4,5 milion of km,
if the future changes in orbital elements shall go in the right direction
we should have a good comet to see and a possible new meteor shower,
the Earth passing around 10 days after the comet in the near same point
of space.Strangely for a comet with only 2° of  inclination, the orbit after
more of 45 day, it's until now 1.0.
Best greetings.
