    Hi All,
    
    This is a bit off-topic, but I wanted to congratulate our own Rainer Kracht
    for
    being the finder of SOHO comet #500 on Monday, August 12th!  See the
    following link:
    
    <http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/pickoftheweek/>
    
    Rainer has discovered a whopping 63 sungrazing comets (the majority of
    them this year); most of these were found in SOHO's imagery archive and
    had been missed by the professionals, but #500 was a "live" comet that
    Rainer spotted in the real-time data as it entered the narrow field-of-view
    LASCO C2 camera on Monday.
    
    Cheers,
    Rob
