Comet Families Meet (June 20, 2019)
Hi-res TIF (1.4M)
This is cool: two comets, from two different families (Kreutz & Meyer), representing two different classes of comet (sungrazer vs sunskirter), just 6-arcmin apart in the same image! Both discovered via the Sungrazer Project.
The image and text was provided by NRL scientist Karl Battams.
SOHO began its Weekly Pick some time after sending a weekly image or video clip to the American Museum of Natural History (Rose Center) in New York City. There, the SOHO Weekly Pick is displayed with some annotations on a large plasma display.
