Comet 96P/Machholz in Stereo

Comet 96P/Machholz was in view of the SOHO cameras last week. Now it is in view of the STEREO H1A camera.

This image is an overprocessed version of the original Stereo fts file. The comet is lower right. Here is an animation based on the unprocessed files.

As I wort before Machholz will be a bit of a bust for southern viewers. However, 2P/Eneke will be a nice binocular object. It is currently also in the Stereo cameras as well, but very faint.
