Well these set of photos
Link: sohodata.nascom.nasa.gov...:detector=C3

have a little glowing spot, with long bands stretching out, and it remains in the same place in all the pictures, and they take place over a very long time frame

Generally, when you see an image like the one you posted, it is usually a star or planet because it remains stationary for so long.
Also, the bands emanating from the sides usually indicates a fairly bright object that the camera has a hard time focusing on.
I believe it is a planet or one of the bright stars out there.
Star and flag though.

yeah, that;s kind of weird. It doesn't seem to move at all.
You can see comets and stuff coming in and out of the field of view, but that thing the bottom middle doesn't move.
Of course, that could mean some sort of "artifact" of the optics or scratch on a lens that is causing some strange refraction. I guess you'd have to look back further at older images to see when it first show's-up.

The images are taken twelve minutes apart. That does not mean the streak was there for 12 minutes.

The streaks are the result of cosmic rays striking the sensor.

Cosmic Rays: Cosmic rays are noise (white dots, blobs and streaks) created in the images by energetic particles striking the cameras in the telescopes. Cosmic rays get reported as comets more often than real comets do! So it essential to learn how to distinguish them from something that is real.

On the blue photos, what is that long stream that looks like part of the sun that goes to the outer edge of the image?

It is the lollipop handle....

I suppose you could call it the arm that holds the central sun blocking disk...

But Lollipop sounds better

Ok, cool. So it is part of the camera, not part of the sun. I thought there was something freaky going on with the sun for a bit. Thanks.
