Hello all, here are the latest confirmations.  Mike, you were

correct to confirm John's comet...I wasn't looking in the
correct location due to -100 pixel offset in the coordinates...
my apologies.

Also, I am sad to say that this is my last post to this
website. I will no longer be associated with NRL, NASA, or
anything LASCO-comet related as I am heading off to grad school
at Johns Hopkins Univ. I suggested a proper replacement earlier
this year but unfortunately it never materialized. As of this
moment there is no dedicated comet person but I have been assured
that LASCO personnel will periodically check this website for
reports (though they may not start for a few weeks). However,
the rate at which they check reports will be significantly less
frequent than the rate you experienced under Doug and myself.
In addition, I ask that you please have patience with whomever
monitors this page...they will have extensive knowledge of the
LASCO instruments but not necessarily with the properties of the
LASCO comets.

I wish everyone the best,

be measured and reported soon. Congrats Tony, this may be the

I can confirm John's 2nd comet, the one at

2003/08/23 C3 21:18 806 711.

I can also see something at the third location, at
2003/08/23 C3 21:18 705 648,
but it has erratic movement, so I think that it is dust shed from the spacecraft.

Also,I checked Mike's last post Aug 25 2003 13:24:55. 

The object is very dim,from 11:42 to 16:18 is visible,
and lost 3 positions,perhaps it is a X-comet, I think.

Regards,
XingMing

Heiner is reporting a very faint possible object.
Not reported by anyone else.
I can also confirm Mike Boschat's 2nd comet of
Aug 29 2003 07:56:58 preceding the bright one.
The bright comet is Mike Boschat's comet he reported
Aug 28 2003 18:07:50.
Bo the comet you reported on Aug 2003 17:51:47
in C2 for Aug 24th images is the one I reported on
