Well, it looks like we only have six or seven images showing
Tony's Kreutz. Oh well, better than nothing, I suppose...
Well done to Hua Su for spotting the first Meyer-group comet we
have had in a very long time! Fortunately we got plenty of images
for that one.
We should get our normal image quota back next week. Until then,
please keeping checking what few images we have for the return of
C/2002 R5 (there's a prize for its recovery...).
As always, email me with any questions, concerns, etc.

Wow! Many congratulations to Rob on his five-comet haul! It is
amazing for several reasons, including the first time we've had
five C3 comets in less than a day and the first time a comet
hunter has found five realtime comets in a day (four of which
were within less than an hour)!! Amazing stuff -- well done, Rob!
We're officially out of that horrible keyhole now so we should
have plenty of realtime data and almost all gaps filled 100%.
I hope you all like (or at least tolerate) that changes I have
made to the comet report form. Please let me know if you have
any problems with it. I have decided to keep a permanent link to
the old repotr form in case any of you have a preference. The
link can be found immediately beneath the current report form.
Email me with questions, etc.

Note that the posts marked with a * were reports made to the
sohohunter chat page. Gouyou Sun and Tao Chen reported their
comet within a minute of each other and, as I can not be
certain on the timing of the sohohunter reports, they get
joint credit for the discovery.
As always, all (sensible) unretracted claims were checked. Please
email me if you have any questions.
I do not think the comet website will go down again any time soon
so you should not need to make any more reports to the sohohunter
page. If you are unsure, you are welcome to email your reports to
Have a great weekend!

I'm pretty certain I checked all the claims but if you feel
particularly hard-done-by then please email me.

There was a lot of "noise" on the reports page this time around.
90% of this can be eliminated if people would wait for a third
image before making a report. So please do so unless you are
convinced your object is real.
Bo's archive claim looks like it's real but it is just too faint
to be sure. It couldn't get good positions for it, either, so it
becomes X-Comet #55. Sorry, Bo! The archive report from Hua was
much better and I got six or seven good positions for it.
Congratulations to John on his fantastic Kreutz comet -- already
it is looking very nice indeed and must be at least a 4th mag
object. It wouldn't surprise me to see it saturate C2 a little.
Great find, John!
