These comets are quite rare, about 1 in 12 of the comets found with SOHO are of the non-sungrazing type. Some may well hit the Sun or get destroyed by the corona, but some may get away and continue on it's orbit. This type of comet includes all comets except the Kreutz Sungrazers.
A very faint comet found in C2 images, brightened from V = 7.8 on May 7.254 UT to 7.1 on May 7.368, but
had faded to V = 8.3 on May 7.452, and it was not seen in the C3
instrument. This is not a Kreutz sungrazer.
Found on the evening of March 21 2000 while searching archive data from the LASCO C3 instrument on FITS images
taken on May 11 1999. The comet was seen moving away from the Sun, getting brighter then fading, it could be followed on the May 12th images
as well. Doug Biesecker also located the comet on C2 frames on the 10th.
