The above two extracts from my “Comets” book tell you everything you need to know. SMILE.

NASA/ESA SOHO makes available digital images that amateurs can scan at their leisure to spot comets.

The 3,000th comet thus discovered was made in September 2015.

So just under 5-years to find another 1,000. That is 200 a year. NOT BAD.
