SOHO Comets 2001

The table list the provisional SOHO number for the comet, the day and month of the first (discovery) observation, the year and comet identification, the LASCO coronagraph on which it was discovered, the discoverer (names in brackets are independent discoverers), with the number of their discoveries given in brackets following the name, and finally the date of discovery. Note that provisional numbers may be changed if the comet is not confirmed.
