Rob,


It's only a combination of cosmic ray hits. The object varies too
much in brightness and shape and is not visible in the image of
18:06. You are right, it's a bit too fast.

There are three additional Kreutz family comets which were

reported since Oct 19th. One of the comets is an archive
discovery. I am now caught up. I have considered all reports
up until this moment. The current comet count stands at 369.

The possible comet is well visible only
on two C3 b/w at

2001/11/02 09:18 (416,421)?
2001/11/02 09:42 (415,420)
2001/11/02 10:20 (413,417)

On image at 09:18 seem that is not visible
nothing. Also the orbit is not
compatible with a Kreutz orbit.
Possible but.......


I am waiting other images and 1024 images to verify.

Toni Scarmato

I cannot confirm Toni's report. If you ask me it would be better

to wait (1) if a poss. object is on a non-Kreutz orbit AND
(2) if there are only one, two or three images AND
(3) they are only low-resolution b/w's AND
(4) it is not visible in on of the max. three images AND
(5) it seems not so well visible regarding the brightness
development.

Very, very faint object. Very hard
to get exact on object with 512.
I noticed this object when the images
were enlarged. But the 1st XY would
be close to the object.

x-coordinates are probably correct,

Thank you Sebastian. I'll agree, it must be noise, I

saw nothing on new images.

BTW: How come there are so many images in C2 and C3
almost every 10 minutes in the C2?

Is this a routine operations for SOHO?

Thanks...

Mike (and all),


that's what you can find on the websites:

-----------------------
SOHO Daily Meeting Minutes for Friday, 02 November 2001

[...]

LASCO: Nominal. C2 and C3 synoptics. High cadence observations
begin tonight and additional color sequences are being
taken on the weekend.
-----------------------

Regards, Sebastian
Nov 04 2001 15:48:46 Doug Biesecker
doug@sungrazer.nascom.nasa.gov
For the weekend, LASCO is operating at a higher cadence because

the EIT instrument is 'baking out.' That is, we occasionally
heat the EIT CCD up to remove contaminants which settle onto the
CCD, degrading the sensitivity. Since LASCO and EIT share a
computer and telemetry, that means LASCO gets the EIT resources.
When baking out, EIT does not take any images. Though, when
the bake out ends, there will be a series of EIT calibration
images taken, causing a larger than usual interruption to LASCO.

I've confirmed only one of this past weekend's reports. That is
the comet in C2 on 2001 Nov 4 reported by the Mimeevs. We're
working out exactly how to give credit on this one. The rough
positions are given below.

There will be an interruption of LASCO data beginning tomorrow.
This is due to Station Keeping and Momentum Management. Basically,
spacecraft activities to trim the orbit and to control the spin
of the reaction wheels.

Tuesday 6 Nov
LASCO to close doors at 21 UT

Friday 9 Nov
LASCO to open doors at 19:30 UT

This schedule is tentative, assuming all goes as planned.

It is about 1:00 AM, and for the last hour or so I have been seeing a comet over Vermont. All I have is an old pair of binnoculars, nothing fancy; but if you look to the East, and slightly South (from where I live), you can see it. To the naked eye it appears like a star speckling every color in the array. When you use the binnoculars, you can see the tail and everything...it's spectacular. It looks like a "cosmic sperm cell". Hehe

Hopefully there will be something about this in the news tommorow. Please email me if you feel the need to tell me anything important.

(PS, isn't it kind of weird how we had this the night after that spectacular Northern Lights show?)

Best Wishes,
Chris

There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING visible in the 1024 images. Not at the

Anyhow, I would be interested in the 11:18 image. I couldn't get

DO YOU NEED OTHER INFORMATION? I THINK THAT YOU NOT HAVE
FOLLOWED WELL THE B/W SEQUENCE.

Also, I work with 816x562 pixels images and I KNOW THAT IT IS
POSSIBLE THAT THE OBJECTS ARE NOT VISIBLE IN 1024 IMAGES.
BUT I HAVE POSTED 4 POSITIONS AND

1) IN MY IMAGES THE OBJECT IS VISIBLE
2) THE MOTION IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE TIME INTERVALS
etc... etc....

IF IT IS NOISE PATIENT!!!!!

Toni,


I asked for the image - nothing less, nothing more - because I am
interested in getting exeprience - nothing less, nothing more.

Anyhow: Nothing in 1024.

I cannot confirm Toni's report. Nothing except some noise visible

at the indicated positions. Furthermore the object would be far
to slow for a Kreutz comet at such a heliocentric distance.

Re: Toni's last report


This one is easy: One image shows noise to nothing, the two others
show noise. Additionally, the motion is erratic and not typical for a
Kreutz sungrazer.

Kind regards,

Hi All,


Possible comet in today's C2 images, though it only
appears in 4 frames. Approximate coordinates:

1024 x 1024 color C2 (0,0 in upper left):

11/12 10:50 731,1001
11:06 715, 984 d -16, -17
11:26 701, 969 d -14, -15
11:50 676, 945 d -25, -24

Avg. velocity [-0.92x, -0.93y] per minute. Points 1, 2
and 4 seem okay, but the 11:26 point while in the right
direction appears to be at the wrong speed (about 4 minutes
behind).

Prior frame to this sequence was 10:06, which would put the
object (if real) off the frame. Nothing visible at 12:06.

Before I get to all of the reports submitted over the long holiday
weekend, I wanted to make sure everyone was aware of the special
operations coming up. The SOHO spacecraft will be undergoing a
series of rolls on Wednesday, Nov 14. These are for calibration
of the various SOHO instruments. LASCO will be observing at
different roll angles throughout the day. I'm not sure what sort
of regular data we'll be getting. Any data we do get will be
oriented at unusual angles. SOHO will be rolled in intervals
of 30 degrees, taking about 54 minutes per roll. It'll run from
about 11 UT to 22 UT.

You can see some of the SOHO details at

were reported by X. Zhou. Both were seen in C2, one on Nov 11 and
one on Nov 12. Both were faint and appeared point-like. Rough

As for the other reports, I cannot confirm any of them. The claim
by X. Leprette for a comet in C2 images on Nov 6th has a motion
which is consistent with expectations. However, due to the lack
of a 'cometary' morphology and the high cosmic ray count, I can't
accept this as a definitive comet. One could probably find lots
of 'objects' with linear motion in these images.

The claim by R. Matson for an object in C2 on Nov 12th has an
inconsistent motion, as stated by Rob. Also, the brightness
variation is not consistent, with the object brightening in the
last frame.

This comet is in images from 20011114_0250_c2.gif
to 20011114_0506_c2.gif there is a gap of images before
02:50 so its first appearance is away from the edge of the

As many of you have no doubt already noticed, the SOHO roll
maneuvers have begun. The spacecraft is being rolled 360 degrees
in 30 degree steps.

The comet reported by A. Mimeev has been confirmed. It's following
the Kreutz family trajectory and is visible in C2. Rough
positions given below.

If my estimate is correct, this is the 350th Kreutz family comet
observed by SOHO.

Suspect object in 4 consecutive C2 frames moving on non-Kreutz

trajectory. Approximate coordinates in 1024x1024 images (0,0
in upper left):

11/16 20:26 577, 1019
20:50 591, 987
21:15 601, 965
21:30 608, 945 (or 605, 953?)

Neither object in the 21:30 frame is quite at the expected
location, though they are both on the correct line, and a
point halfway between them would be a decent match. Nothing
above noise is visible at 21:54 at the extrapolated position.

Regarding Rainer's object:

I don't belive this to be a comet because it shows strong
varieties in brightness and shape. E.g in the 19:54 image it is
modestly bright and highly condensed and in the next image it`s
very diffuse and faint. Furthermore it changes shape somwhat
randomly.

I watched the shower from outside New York City, and it was quite splendid; from 0815 to 1100 UT I was seeing well over 100 meteors per hour despite half the sky being obscured by trees, with many bright fireballs (though none to rival Mike's); it was by far the most spectacular meteor shower I've ever seen.

Object is in the middle of the image just off the left hand side of the suns disc. Although it only appears in this one image, the object is so close to the sun it would probably have disintegrated anyway! The object does seem to have a small tail. Could possibly be noise, but I'll leave you to decide!

neighbouring images, too. A average comet in C2 on its way to the
suns center should be visible in at least four images, a lot more
if it is that bright.- Third, if you would have looked at the examples for common
mistakes you would have noticed that this is clearly a cosmic ray hit.
- Fourth, if you are not sure, look at the 1024x1024 images.
- Fifth, if you are still not sure, don't post it.
And last, but not least, the images are so intensively checked
by a lot of people... they would have reported such an obvious
object minutes after the images would have been available.

Look at the other discoveries, try to re-discover it by yourself
and get some experience. With some perserverance you should be successful.

Cheers

the up date has Nov 23? Are there 2 comets??

Regarding my last report, at this moment 

I not have found
others images at 1024 pixels, but an elaboration
of the images used show that the object is like
probably a comet moving on a Kreutz orbit.

I see Alexander's object and I believe

it is Messier ( M 4 ) in Scorpius.
The Sun in now in that area sice Delta
Scorpii is noted as well as the other 2
stars Beta and Pi.

Note, there will be more Messier
objects going through the C3 field
soon and Sagittarius shows a few good
ones like M22.

 I saw the comet at 16:45 on November 23. It was traveling from the North to the South. The front of the comet looked like it was burning, the comet also had a long tail. The color was bright orange when the sky was blue. It was hard to miss.

Hi All,


Okay, this time I've got one for sure. Diffuse comet with tail
first appears at 11/26 11:54 in C2 and is visible in at least
4 consecutive images. It may be in a 5th (still checking).
Here are approximate positions of the brightest part of the
comet (1024x1024 images; 0,0 in upper left):

11/26 11:54 385, 1001
12:06 383, 991
12:30 378, 972

I now see Xavier beat me to it on the C2 comet.  This is

odd -- I hit refresh on the "What's New" page just seconds
before posting, and there was nothing there. Then, when
I came back from posting, two new posts had appeared from
Xavier dated an hour earlier. --Rob

Off Topic sort of for new hunters...


The "fuzzy" object just in view on the
right side of the strut that holds the
occultation disk is the gloublar cluster M4
in Scorpius, and not a comet. I would think
that M80 "might" be visible in the 1024 sizes.
As the Sun progress into Scorpius-Sagitarrius areas
one will see more Messier objects like the
Lagoon Nebula, M22, and other know objects.
Use a star map to see what objects may be seen
in the coming months.

happy hunting

The first small jubilee...

Program FEDERICO has found (detected) already 50 comets (2001).

All, who interesting...
I has checked Leprett comet (20011126) in the program
FEDERICO (. and F. Mimeev).
Program easy found this vastly to weaken and ill-defined comet.
Regrettably, program did not be able to find
a comet in "6 coordinates".

Not sure what it was, but since no

assume "it" was noise.

Hello,


I just wanted to say that I have looked at the recent claims
and confirm two of them. They are Zhou's claim of 11/22 and
Leprette's claim of 11/26. Did not see any positions in C3 for
either. Rough positions will follow.

Yurij, I have looked at your positions and they are just
random noise. In fact, as you said, the points are very weak with
all 4 points just about at background noise level. Also, the
morphology of the points (especially the 1st relative to the
remaining) are not consistent.
