The SOHO project is pleased to announce a new contest for its web visitors: the 1,000th Comet Contest. To date, SOHO has discovered almost 900 comets and is on track to find its 1,000th comet sometime this summer. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to guess which day and at what time SOHO 1,000th comet will reach its closest approach to the Sun (called perihelion).
