We, as yet, know very little about these three, supposedly unrelated, comets that rounded the Sun fairly close together.

Given their proximity one would normally think that they were 3 fragments from the same parent comet. Current consensus, though only based on minimal study, is that they are NOT fragments. Basically unrelated. Strange, but can happen.

Very small. Went undetected until spotted, after the fact, on SOHO images.

Have NOT been given MPC designations as yet because we don’t have enough observational data.

Just a heads up.
