My second SOHO comet

C/2006 K10 (SOHO), detected on 20 May, 2006
 
(C2)
Discovery Story:
I didn’t detect SOHO comets for a long time. During this time, I’ve missed a lot and made lots of noise-report. May 20, 2006, Saturday. I went home with Quanzhi, and when I was back, I did some homework first and then had my supper. As soon I finished my supper, I turned on my computer. No bad, The LASCO was working!
I soon downloaded some of the C2 images(during this season, almost no Kreutz comet is found in C3 images). I didn’t find anything until I downloaded the image of 1331UT, there was a comet like object at the bottom of the image, judging from my experience, I knew it had a great chance to be a comet though it had only single coordinate.
I filled some useful information including my name and coordinate in the cometform. Then I kept waiting. I knew, it was a key time, I shall be more patience. I refreshed the LASCO web frequetly. And just at about 22:04, the image of 1354UT came out! I downloaded it quickly. Very soon, I found there was more coordinate to support my claim. I filled it in and submitted my claim. Thanks to my proxyn and the speed of my net, all of these processes were finished in 26 seconds!! Shall it be miraculous?  Maybe!
I backed to the LASCO, the image of 1406UT has come out just after the 1331UT. I checked it and proved that it was my second SOHO comet! The report which I posted is below:

I was also pleased to find that I can do more quickly than Hua Su: he posted the report at 10:15:05, over 1 minute later than me. I made more further reports after more images coming out:

    那你再看看C/2006 L4 (SOHO),考下你的眼神,这是我目前发现最暗的一颗,连苏华、高兴都漏掉了!
