ancora comete verso il sole.. ??
It's finally official: SOHO comets can no longer be designated with only three digits. On 5 August 2005, Toni Scarmato, a high school teacher from San Costantino di Briatico, Calabria, Italy, discovered SOHO's 999th and 1000th comet. Scarmato, an astrophysics graduate of Bologna University, said “I am very happy for this special experience that is possible thanks to the SOHO satellite and NASA-ESA collaboration. I want to dedicate the SOHO 1000th comet to my wife Rosy and my son Kevin to compensate for the time that I have taken from them to search for SOHO comets”.
