Three comets will approach Earth in the next two years, and Tucson-based astronomers plan to study them closely. That includes enlisting help from amateur and professional astronomers around the world to allow for continuous observation.

Again, Sky & Telescope has a vastly superior article about this project...

It's written by the incomparable Bob King (who's quite a comet observer himself), and it even includes some finder charts.
