Stereo - Two Comets in One Field

Two comets, C/2008 T2 Cardinal and C/2007 N3 Lulin, are currently visible in the H1A camera of the stereo spacecraft. See this animation (1 Mb download). Cardinal fairly zips along while Lulin crawls.

Watching these two is a pleasant diversion while I'm waiting for the Moon to wane and clouds to go away so I can catch C/2009 G1 again.

Hat tip to Comet Al and Wentao Xu.
