             abstract = "The goal of the present paper is to study close approaches of a 
                         cloud of particles with an oblate planet, which means that there 
                         is a term in the gravitational potential of the planet. This cloud 
                         of particles is assumed to be created during the passage of a 
                         spacecraft by the periapsis of its orbit, by an explosion or any 
                         other disruptive event. The system is formed by two large bodies 
                         (Sun and planet), assumed to be in circular orbits around the 
                         center of mass of the system, and the cloud of particles. The 
                         particles that belong to the cloud make a close approach to the 
                         flat planet and then they are dispersed by the gravitational force 
                         of the planet. The motion is governed by the equations of motion 
                         given by the planar restricted circular three-body problem plus 
                         the effects of the oblateness of the planet. Jupiter is used for 
                         numerical simulations. The results show the differences between 
                         the behavior of the cloud after the passage, considering or not 
                         the effects of the oblateness of the planet. The results show that 
                         the oblateness of the planet is equivalent to an increase in the 
                         mass of the planet.",
