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!
