Roll maneuver? Does that mean they will point the camera away from the sun so we cant see anything? Because I wouldnt be surprised.

OK....very basic sun question here-

How long does it take sunlight to get to earth?
If I remember correctly, about 4 hours.

But knowing me, I just made that up......


8 minutes for light, but sun flares can take a couple of hours.

About 7 minutes, but particles and energy from solar flares etc take much longer because they don't travel at the speed of light.

I'm no scientist, but I know this much.

I was going to say 8! (honest) *facepalm*

Thank you for the clarification.


(edit, I was going to say minutes aswell
)

Funny, all the images have a time stamp of the 24th..

It seems NASA doesn't want us to see something today... or the roll is making things difficult.

I've never seen such spectacular energy outputs, normally there's just sort of a set of small rays, nothing ever like this.


Before we get scared, what are your qualifications and experience with this?

For example, is "nothing ever like this" since you started watching last week? Or what. =)

thanks

I can't even search the archives for photos of today, at all.

Every other piece of the website works unless you are trying to get images from today.

VERY STRANGE!

The photo does look pretty crazy...




But I'm pretty confident that it looks like this because it was snapped during it's scheduled roll maneuver, and it snapped this while it was inverted or something.

Everything looks very normal and in real-time coming from both STEREO satellites:

Sad no one grabbed a screen capture before it went off,
from the OP's post, i'm curious to see what its doing.
Hopefuly they will restore the photo's when they get it back online and we can see them.... or hey maby it will be to late by then *lol*...

BBQ anyone? *LOL*

As of 11:46am Pacific time, October 26, 2009, this site was still down:
sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov...

I got that URL directly from a link at nasa.gov (which is up).

Very strange, we start getting reports of crazy sun blasts and then they take down the website.

I think if that is real, we are pretty much going to have blackouts...


Good thing is the auroras will be easier to see....

It could always be a massive lens flare from the rotation it's doing at the moment.

However, the website states the images would be inverted or side ways during the turn, and that one looks just fine.

Where is Phage when you need him? lol

I've been watching regularly for over two years now, and trust me, I've never seen such an image before. Anyone who's been watching for longer can correct me, but this was/is a pretty spectacular sight. I caught just before the site went down, i check it several times a day just to comapare with the magnetosphere images from here:

www2.nict.go.jp...

Not saying anything bad is happening, just that it's extremely unusual.
