James,Indeed, as Denis says, this comet’s performance has certainly been on a rollercoaster recently.The latest LASCO C3 image shows a significant blooming spike which implies that the comet is probably negative mag now. It will be interesting to see how it evolves through perihelion and we can watch how events unfold almost in real time using the SOHO cameras.Nick.
