C/1980 E1 is a non-periodic comet discovered by Edward L. G. Bowell on 11 February 1980 and came closest to the Sun in March 1982. It is leaving the Solar System due to a close approach to Jupiter. Since its discovery only 1I/ʻOumuamua and 2I/Borisov have been identified with a faster trajectory.[1][2]
