SOHO is a spacecraft which measures the activities on the Sun. It is not a comet hunter as people think it is. Though since it blocks most of the Sunlight it can look into places which cant be seen by naked eye using a telescope. Most of these coment discoveries are those which were at its closest point from the Sun .

Pics from SOHO are available from the net .. Google
