I could only see Tony's C2 Kreutz in three images, so sadly it has
to be an x-comet. However, congratulations are due to Tony for
another reason... Late last month, he and Dr Brian Marsden received
the American Astronomical Societies' "Popular Writing Award" for
their excellent sungrazing comets cover article in Sky & Telescope
magazine! Congratulations Tony and Brian!

I have given the LASCO homepage something of a facelift, so please
let me know if you find any deadlinks of errors on the LASCO
homepage. Thanks.

Congratulations to Hua Su for finding all five of the above comets
and also for finding his 100th SOHO comet -- well done!!

I will put some information about C/2006 M4 (SWAN) on the latest
news page (hopefully) next week. SOHO will be entering the keyhole
right as the comet is in view, so I do not know how much viewing
time we will get (this is looking like a bad keyhole for LASCO...)
