I will work on some more archive reports next, and then the April 2023 reports.

Apologies again for the website issues we've had lately. There is maintenance work being done that is causing occasional power outages, some of which are planned, but a couple of which have not been planned... 

Early next week (maybe Monday?) we will be releasing the data for Parker Solar Probe / WISPR Encounter 14, so some of you may want to keep an eye out for those. A description of the various data products can be found on the WISPR Data Access page. For comet hunting, I recommend the L3 data, which has already been corrected for the F-corona (zodiacal dust) background. If you use the L2 data, you need to somehow get rid of that feature yourself. You can find all the different FITS products here, and processed .png images here. Send any reports to me, cc sungrazercomets[at]gmail, and feel free to post them to SOHOHunter too. Just note that the overlap between the Kreutz stream and the WISPR field of view only lasts a few days, typically about a week before PSP's perihelion. I have only glanced at the data but do see that SOHO-4590 is very clearly visible leaving the WISPR-Inner fov on Dec 7, 2023, and SOHO-4591 is quite easily seen following it the next day. So please keep that in mind.

As always, feel free to reach out with any questions, concerns, corrections, etc.
