Kreutz is not enough
Ninety percent of the comets discovered by the SOHO satellite are members of the Kreutz sungrazing family. But SOHO's found other comet families, too.
To date, astronomers credit the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), a joint mission between NASA and the European Space Agency, with discovering 1,089 comets in 10 years of operation. Although the satellite's main job is watching the Sun, SOHO has become history's most successful comet-finder.
