P/1999 R1 (SOHO) was recovered in SOHO LASCO C2 images by B. Zhou.
The Kracht 2 orbital group comet was at perihelion on the 7th September, 2011.
Orbital period is 4.0 years.

P/1999 R1 = 2003 R5 = 2007 R5

Comet P/2007 R5 (SOHO)
P_2007_R5_SOHO_medium.gif

The comet faded as quickly as it brightened, and soon became too faint for SOHO's instruments to see it. Estimates show that P/2007 R5 (SOHO) is probably only 100-200 metres in diameter. Given how small and faint this object is, and how close it still is to the Sun, it is an extremely difficult target for observers on Earth to pick out in the sky.

P/2007 R5 (SOHO) seems to behave like a comet, even though it doesnt really look like one.

 It is quite possibly an extinct comet nucleus of some kind - Karl Battams, who runs SOHO's comet discovery programme.

Comet P/1999 R1 = 2003 R5 = 2007 R5 (SOHO)
This comet was discovered by  Bo Zhou on September 10, 2007 on real time  images transmitted by the coronagraph C2 of  the SOHO satellite.
Sebastian Hönig (2006, Astron. Astrophysics. 445, 759)  had previously announced the perihelion return  of the comet C/2003 R5 (SOHO), and confirmed the identity with the comet C/1999 R1 (SOHO).
The orbital elements of the comet P/2007 R5 (SOHO) indicated perihelion on September 11, 2007 at a distance of 0.0537196 AU from the Sun, and a 3.99 years period.
