Many of the SOHO images are time lasped, which causes the stars to "streak". Other streaks, are more than likely meterorite showers, and such. As
for the solar flares, those are normal, and the black anomaly in the right side of the sun, is most likely caused by the camera. The blocks are from
the digital camera, called pixelisation. It happens with all digital video equipment.
I have noticed it as well, when I got into SOHO wen it was first released.
Nothing new, but always niffty to see, and confusing for those not familar with the program.
