Comets and Magnetic Fields

    Comets have what is called an "induced magnetosphere". Has anyone been able to document polarity in any of the observed comets magnetic fields yet ? If they have I'm curious how it relates to the orbital plane of the comet.

    I haven't been able to locate that info if it exists so just asking if anyone else has.

    Watching Rosetta and 67/P has me thinking about comets.
