I talked about the 17P/Holmes explosion as my #1 bullet in “Comets: 101 Facts & Trivia“.


This ‘LINEAR’. C/2012 X1 was discovered after C/2012 S1 — i.e., ISON. ‘S’ vs. ‘X’. This ‘LINEAR’ (and there are a lot of comets discovered by LINEAR) is still in the asteroid belt. It will not make perihelion till February 21, 2014. So it is trailing ISON by 3 months.
