Like Monty Python’s parrot I think the only reason that this comet is still sitting on its perch is that it has been nailed there. It is now visible in the SOHO LASCO C2 field and there is no saturation blooming. Reports indicate that the nucleus no longer exists and we are just seeing a cloud of dust and debris.I’d love to be wrong though. Watching it on the SOHO images is fascinating, although quite hard at times since the site is clearly overloaded.
