6.9 year periodic, 17P/Holmes snapped on November 2, 2007 when it was, for a time, the LARGEST known object in the Solar System eclipsing the Sun.
Astronomers are still trying to work out the details.
I have checked all of the obvious places, such as Minor Planet Center (MPC) and NASA. Nothing yet.
IF it overtakes 17P/Holmes to take the record for the LARGEST known object in the Solar System, even if it was only for a few days,
that would be cool.
I will be on the case.

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