    On September 15, Karl Battams—a computational scientist at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL)—confirmed the discovery of the 3,000th near-sun comet using an NRL instrument. "We are taking images of the region of space that surrounds the sun," says Battams, "and this allows us to see small objects very near the sun that would otherwise be invisible from earth." The images come from NRL's LASCO instrument, which orbits on the SOHO spacecraft.
