Sun pulls a complete 360 on it's axis.

That soft x-ray recording takes place over 27 hours, that's how long it takes the Sun to make one complete revolution.

The Sun does not physically flip over or anything either.. It wobbles on it's axis, it's magnetic poles flip, but it doesn't flip over on it's physical axis.

Interesting. Could just be the camera flipping. Their has been some reports of the sun not rising in the right place lately.

Thats due to the fact that the seasons are converting to winter, for the northern hemisphere, and summer, for the southern hemisphere. The sun changes positions as the Earth changes its axial tilt. Im actually surprised at how people actually do not know this. Its a basic fact

first of the all, viddy looks really hoax, but pretty funny

Gravity results from mass.

while the question "could gravity be generated with another ways than classicals?" is opened

Chad wins. It was a satellite roll.

Honestly people, what are the chances that the Sun would rotate like that, and what are the chances that the axis of rotation would be pointing exactly at the center of the camera? The fact that the axis of rotation is pointed directly at the camera just confirms that the camera rotated, not the sun.

This is just a satellite roll maneuver.

There was one on the 12th of October this year too.

Go to the SDO gallery HERE and input the date and select the AIA 211 (purple) telescope and watch the movie.

On October 12 SDO successfully performed a 7-hour roll maneuver to help calibrate the HMI instrument calibration. The spacecraft roll started at same time as HGA handover operation. This complicated the operational sequences but did not stop either maneuver. While it is easy to point a space-based instrument at the center of the Sun it is more difficult to know the precise location of the Sun's rotation axis. Data from the roll maneuvers help the scientists to understand how their instrument response varies at different angles of the rotation axis. This is then used to more accurately remove the rotation effects from the data.

Well this sums it up....

no doubt, besides, its magnetic axis is perpendicular to the eliptical plane, thus if it really had spun at that angle, it wouldn't have been on it's spinning axis, it would have been like taking a baton and twirling it

sorry haven’t got back to ya went out for a few beers.
It’s a spec on the external lens that is a shield for the actual camera lens that rotates inside the satellite. It uses less energy to rotate the camera inside the satellite with an electric motor verses having to use thrusters and so on to move the whole satellite. The outer lens is fixed to the satellite and the inner camera moves independently.

Youre possibly/probably right about that, however, that isnt the SOHO its a different program/mission called EVE

Oh well, nevermind, HunkaHunka got the scoop.

to rotate the camera inside the satellite

Just for curiosity, why do they need to've function like that, what is benefit with rotation?

Probably just a equipment test that mission control dose periodically. But I really don’t know for sure.

SDO is a 3-axis stabilized spacecraft, with two solar arrays, and two high-gain antennas. The spacecraft includes three instruments: the Extreme Ultraviolet Variability Experiment (EVE) built in partnership with the University of Colorado at Boulder's Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP), the Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager (HMI) built in partnership with Stanford University, and the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) built in partnership with the Lockheed Martin Solar & Astrophysics Laboratory. Data which is collected by the craft will be made available as soon as possible, after it is received

you guys are making me facepalm hardcore

It happened in 12 hours, with a circumference of 2,713,406 miles

2,713,406 / 12 = 226,117 miles per hour

To put that into perspective, that is 294 times the speed of sound. Does anyone have any idea of the amount of force it would take to suddenly lurch the most massive object in our solar system to that kind of speed?

C'mon guys, do you realy think the sun could spin around that fast without flying apart, or at least having some massive swirls and flares?

Look, the camera spun around, and the black dot was either a speck of dust, or a broken pixel. Therefore, it stayed stationary relative to the camera.

If that kind of thing DID happen, we would've all been dead 8 minutes later

so far one of the first consecuences on the planet will be the magnetic fields all over ,but so far all the airplanes and etc machines that require a com pass are safely working.

Here is what causes this, the satellite orbits the Earth with it's antenna facing Earth. This means the craft rotates 360dg each orbit. The camera points at the sun and rotates slowly in relation to the craft so that the camera does not rotate in relation to the sun. Now it cannot rotate indefinably without twisting up its wires so each time it has twisted 360dg it quickly spins back and starts over. The non moving spec is of course attached to the camera so it moves with the camera. For those that have a hard time understanding, if the spec is on your camera lens and you twist your camera, the dot will appear stationary while the scene will twist around. Pull out your cell phone and and record this effect on video if you still have doubts.

Now the stoned dude on the video was very fun, made the whole thing worth it! Enjoy your pot but watch more MTV and less SOHO images.

I agree..My other thought is that the object could also be located on the surface of the SOHO lens housing. The actual lens rotates independently of the housing if memory serves.

I thought the whole video was an absolute crack up.

That is the guy off the movie "Adaptation" ( the orchid hunter)

But there is not swirl at all...they all stay exactly the same.

I would guess it was a lens adjustment or something to that affect. I don't think the Sun did a 360.

gel photo filters are seen attached externally. I noticed this in the original post I hardly believe the sun physically rotated the 360 degrees,." more so thecamera was tracking as it orbited the earth and as the satelite camera wentpast verticle the image or sensor or even a mirror was spun to flip the image so it recorded in "proper" orientation,

, Like when the camera ball l on a targetting or reconnaissance pod on a jet fighter is watching a the ground target approaching( gound is at the bottom of thescreen the sky at the top; as the plane flys over the camera points further downward til it crosses verticle as the plane flys away the camera is rotated to maintain the same ground on bottom sky at top picture otherwise lookingbackward the sensor is up side down.

heres an example in a harrier video 40 to 60 seconds in as the plane advances the camera rotates to maintain proper orientation on the screen
theres your rotation....

I know what people are saying about the camera rotating and that we'd assume we wouldn't be here if the sun did actually flip at that speed and the speck being on the oute rlens all makes sense...and so I wouldd assume this (the camera rotating) has happened at least once before if not many times, so can anyone find any of the previous camera flips, surely this would put it all to rest?

Its oblivious the lens is being flipped, you can tell by by the whole frame changes and not just the sun.

The sun didn't do a 360 flip on its axis.

The universe did a 360 flip around the sun.
