    Hello all,
    
    Picked this up this morning from the BBC science and technology page:
    
    An amateur astronomer has discovered a new comet - using not a back garden
    telescope but a multi-million pound satellite.
    
    Michael Oates, a British observer, spotted the comet in an online image
    taken by the satellite-based Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (Soho). It
    is the 200th comet to be found using Soho.
