In 1757, Nicole-Rhine Etabl de la Brire joined the Lalande and Claire started work on the calculation of the expected orbit of a comet (Halley's) because of its perturbations from Jupiter and Saturn. As a result, it was predicted that the comet will be delayed for 618 days and will pass perihelion in April 1759 with a possible error in the month (the comet passed it in March).
