Great find OP! Could it jut be that this was a comet making its way across the heavens? Or did it crash into the sun? If it was closer to the camera, would it not have appeared again out the other side of the sun? And if it went into the sun, how big must this thing have been...?
SUNDIVING COMET: The solar system has one less comet after one of the dirty snowballs swung past the sun on Nov. 14th--a little too close--and did not survive. Click on the image to view a movie of the death plunge:
Japanese comet hunter Masanori Uchina first noticed the sundiver in coronagraph images from the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) on Nov. 13th. At the time it was a dim and distant speck, but it rapidly brightened on Nov. 14th as it approached the hot sun. Now it is just a dissipating haze of vapor and comet dust.
The comet was likely a member of the Kreutz sungrazer family. Named after a 19th century German astronomer who studied them in detail, Kreutz sungrazers are fragments from the breakup of a giant comet at least 2000 years ago. Several of these fragments are thought to pass by the sun and disintegrate every day. Most are too small to see but occasionally a bigger fragment like this one attracts attention.

Very good points! - I did not see it come out the other side so I am guessing it got pulled into the sun.
There were no bulletins about this and my sister spends a lot fo time at an observatory in Germany and she said nothing either. FUNNY though that NASA should have everyone looking at black holes while an object like this heads towards the sun though.

If you copy and pasted the dates like I did...make sure there isn't a space after the numbers. I got no data too but i went in back and clicked in the text box and noticed a space after the date. Take that out you'll get it. Interesting find OP
