On July 1rst, there was a huge coronal mass ejection, which did not register the usual x-ray flux that is normally associated with these types of
events. However, the ELFRAD system, which records ULF waves, did at that time record some unusual readings, which has led them to theorize that a
gravity wave may have been responsible for the CME, and was recorded by the ELFRAD system.
The sun has been quite active for the last several days, with another huge CME, see the one above. Now I came across this site which watches downloads
from the SOHO satellite, which observes the sun. I am not really sure this belongs in the science section, however they have indeed recorded some
highly unusual anomolies that the SOHO satellite has imaged. They are suggesting that the sun is under attack (I think) which means that it shouldnt
go in this section, however given the amount of unusual activity the sun has been displaying, I thought it would fit here. In my view they have
recorded some important events, but that does not mean their interpretation is correct.
That being said, in at least on of the images, there is definitely a non-natural object that passed the sun. If it had only appeared in one of the
pictures, it may have been a fluke, and perhaps it is an aberration in SOHO's data, I am by no means an expert on the space craft.
Anyhow, check out the site, there are some really intense pictures, and the page may take awhile to load as it is graphic intensive.
Also, the earth will be hit on the 20th from a CME that occurred earlier today.
A faint halo CME observed in association with the X1-flare on
18 July is expected to impact the earth in the latter half of
the UT day of 20 July. Further CME activity observed on 18 July
may possibly be also earthward directed and geoeffective on
