Wow, that bright SOHO/LASCO Kreutz looks impressive! Maybe mag 3 or so, but will soon just be vapor...

This bright sungrazing comet in / SOHO/LASCO C3 is now just hours away from total vaporization

This 2003 "newspaper" article about UFOs in SOHO data hangs framed in my office. I love it!

Here's a basic "pretty" picture I made of #PanSTARRS in STEREO (img date: Mar 10, 2013 ~20UT)

Managed to slightly enhance striae in Comet #PanSTARRS' tail, but think I can still do better. Will keep trying...

The STEREO-B spacecraft is not only watching Comet #PanSTARRS -- it sees both Earth and Mercury right now!
