Yes, it will be interesting

Yes, it will be interesting to watch it pass through. SOHO is getting very old now and is living on borrowed time. What will we do when it is gone?

Its now just on its way out

Its now just on its way out of the C3 field. There's a nice timelapse movie showing the complete pass here.
