I think the most logical explanation is that the camera lens has an outer lenses shield to protect it from space dust. The outer lens remains fixed while the inner lens is free to rotate and adjust independent of the outer lens. Mystery solved.
i put a vid up on a thread few days ago...asking what that black dot was...and the answers i got that it was attached to lense of the camera.....now if that was the case then surely the dot wud have rotated with the camera?....so the dilema is that either that black thing is very real....and is sitting stationary next to the sun...ooooor the sun flipped on it axis

Good points Brit;
So i wonder which it is. Rotating lens within a lens or objects next to the sun?

You sound high in the video. The SOHO's lens was repositioning itself. The black spec is a spec of dust or something behind the lens, but inside SOHO's aperture or screen. The Sun doesn't do flips like that for fun, or you entertainment. Now polish off that bag of Cheeto's, spliff, and that Natty Light you started.
