As of the last picture...it looks like 2 plasma shots, from the movie "Independence Day". I won't go to sleep, here, in Hungary till I don't see what has happened. It's very spooky, indeed!

Whoa - looks like things are getting more exciting and intriquing!! It sure does have 2 very bright individual light source spots!! Besides that - it seems to have it's own flames and trail of smoke coming off of it.

If this object was going to hit the sun, it probably would have shown up in the "ahead" satellite photos by now. Also, the fact that it sometimes seems to have a "Z" shape may be because the light source is "between" pixels and leaves a distorting effect, but that is just a guess.

When this thread started, I didn't really know what to make of it, but after reviewing the photos and educating myself over the last couple of days, I believe it is just Mercury. My thanks to Phage for posting reasoned and patient comments and replies, as opposed to the cheap condescending insults that some people rely on.

Do you know how often they close for maintainance, and also how long they generally stay closed for?

So, this object, if it's not Mercury, is supposed to hit the sun at 1 am EDT [5 am GMT]? Now, that's gotta be either a big object or highly resistant to heat because, from what I remember about the sun, pretty much everything vaporizes in the corona before it gets close to the sun's surface.

Sorry to come into this thread late and ask such a question, but... could someone link the picture (the links in the OP are broken, for me at least) and tell me where to look in that particular picture please?

They have video of comets hitting the sun, pretty much does nothing to the sun.

Mercury is not in the field of view of SOHO. SOHO is between the Earth and the Sun. The source of the images, STEREO B, is very far from SOHO and has a very different point of view.

Here is the source for today's STEREO B images. You should be able to figure out how to find earlier images:

oops wrong directory..fixed it.

I aint no astrologer


I don't want to sound mean or anything, but you're looking for the world astronomer, nor astrologer. An astronomer studies heavenly bodies. An astrologer tries to find meaning/power in the positions of heavenly bodies.


Exactly m8, lol. Thanx for that info tho, i will remember that in the future!

thats definately not a planet, it aint round for a start, my personal opinion is that its an asteroid/comet. Just from the way it is tumbling, but then again the pictures that show it as 2 objects gets me thinking again, could it be just breaking up as it approaches the suns corona???

Yep Totally Agree,

Further Update:

Definitely Looks Like TWO unless someone can disprove this...if they can't most probably Comets but again, if they are indeed Comets....they must be huge!

Yes, they can.
