SOHO-742 and 743





Comets SOHO-742 (which I discovered), trails SOHO-743 (found by XingMing Zhou) as they approach the Sun. It took them a day to cross the C3 field; they stayed surprisingly stellar in appearance for comets found so close to the field's edge, and neither really developed a tail.
