62P/Tsuchinshan, also known as Tsuchinshan 1, is a periodic comet discovered on 1965 January 1 at Purple Mountain Observatory, Nanking.
During the 2004 perihelion passage the comet brightened to about apparent magnitude 11. The comet was not observed during the 2011 unfavorable apparition since the perihelion passage occurred when the comet was on the far side of the Sun.
On 2049 April 2 the comet will pass about 0.011 AU (1,600,000 km; 1,000,000 mi) from Mars.
