PANSTARRS C/2017 S3, spotted at a distance last year, is now entering our inner solar system and is projected to come between the Sun and Mercury before exiting again.  It a green gaseous ball and is depicted on the white trajectory line in the screenshots below.  Regular photo plus thermal image beneath astronomical software screenshots.

@ around 3:30 narrator says the new comet suddenly brightened significantly overnight en route to perihelion.  Within 24 hours, its luminosity increased 16-fold, as it doubled in size. 

The comet is projected to make its closest pass to the sun on August 15 at a distance of .2 AU.  It should be naked-eye visible in rural areas, but not in cities due to glare.

I have to wonder about these so-called comets, in particular this one, and whether it's actually in orbit around the PX system, but because the PX System has entered our solar system, we are now seeing it.

Here's my logic.  Note that there's no information on its "period", (around 3:45 in video) so we/they have no idea of how often it comes around.  Ok, so it looks like a comet, behaves as one, so let's call it one.  That's OK.  But you know, we've always believed or sort of thought that comets, as we know them, are orbiting our own sun.  But with no information on the periodicity of this PANSTARRS C/2017/S3, they are not being quite truthful in implying it's like other comets with which we are familiar--suggesting it's orbiting our sun and just passing through until its next pass around our sun.

So, my two cents is that this could be accompanying the PX system, some pictures of which we've already seen, particularly by Amber Williamson.  It's probably "just another bolide", of which there will be many, as the PX System continues to near.

You may be correct that it accompanies the Px system.  However, it is supposed to begin its exit in two weeks, unless caught up in the gravitational pulls of the many objects visiting us at this time.

Definition of bolide:
Quote
a large meteor that explodes in the atmosphere.

This behaves differently than a bolide, dipping down below the ecliptic plane before resurfacing on its exit from perihelion.

Thanks for correcting me--I didn't know exact definition of bolide, thinking it's just a large space rock, larger than dust and pebbles, but smaller than a "real comet".
