Abstract: The presented paper is an overview of the problems related to the preferred direction, if any, in the distribution of long-period comet perihelion points, as well as of the observational selection effects in the comet discoveries affecting the distribution. This preferred direction is studied with respect to the origin of comets. (The paper is, in fact, an extract from the author's PhD dissertation dealing with this topic.)
