Karl Battams of the Naval Research Lab talks us through a visualization of the comets that SOHO has witnessed.
This visualization utilizes SOHO data from 1998-2010 and shows over 2,000 comets. Comets that were first observed by SOHO carry no labels, and comets witnessed by not discovered by the spacecraft are represented with their labels. Trails on the comets are color coded based on family: yellow - unaffiliated comets, red - Kreutz group, green - Meyer group, blue - Marsden, cyan - Kracht, and magenta - Kracht 2.
