On Sept. 13, 2015, the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory – a joint project of the European Space Agency and NASA — discovered its 3,000th comet, cementing its standing as the greatest comet finder of all time. Prior to the 1995 launch of the observatory, commonly known as SOHO, only a dozen or so comets had ever even been discovered from space. via NASA http://www.nasa.gov/image-feature/3000th-comet-spotted-by-solar-and-heliospheric-observatory-soho
