Re: SOHO comet pair in lastest C2 SOHO images
- This was indeed an interesting SOHO Kreutz comet and showed a
residual tail AFTER perihelion up until about 4hrs UT May 25th. I
think the only other SOHO Kreutz comets show tail debrii after
perihelion were 1998K10 and K11.
This latest comet reached about mag 0-1, still well short of the mag -
2 to -3 reached by some of the SOLWIND and Solar Max comets of the
late 70's and 80's.
