The first 3 pics are from LASCO 2. They are step by step frame by frame snapshots. The last 3 frames of data it shows for 2011-04-22...Then the last 2 are the last to frames it shows in LASCO 3 and they jump 2 hours. I am looking to know if the last is something we should be worried about or if its just a glitch? I pay attention to SOHO but im no expert. Thats why Im tring to ask people who know more about this what it is just so I know for future reference...Heres frame 1 from LASCO 2..
Frame 2 WHERE IT LOOKS LIKE A CME IS FORMING ON THE RIGHT SIDE..keep scrollin
Frame 3..


AND HERE THE SECOND ONE IS WHAT I AM ASKING THE QUESTION ABOUT FROM LASCO 3...keep goin
...FRAME 2


So if anyone has any answers for me it would be appreciated. Im only trying to further my knowledge so I know in the future and wont have to make a thread to ask these questions.

ADD: ONE OF THE POSTERS RESPONDED WITH INFO THAT I GUESS ITS NOT A GLICH AND INSTEAD AN M CLASS FLARE...PRETTY COOL INFO ON THE SITE HE PROVIDED

Although these are great pictures of the sun.

Without the proper training, making sense of these is impossible.

Without thousands of years of records to rely on, What is normal ?

I'm not an expert either. But maybe it's a very large flare on the back side of the sun? Either way I visit the SOHO site myself once in a while and this anomaly/occurrence in the image is new to me. I'm watching and waiting for the next update as I'm sure others are as well.

There was someone knowlegeable on a link from a few weeks ago on the thread "what the hell is the sun doing?" (sorry, I haven't taken the time to learn how to post links). He gave some examples and what to look for at Soho website. Looks like we have a "C" class/borderline "M" class flare developing. M and X class are the worst.
The solar wind data is unavailble at this time at SOHO according to the message I got at that website, so that is also what needs to be looked at.

Here is how i see it...something noteworthy happened, and there are 8 hours of footage missing

When i add up that equation, i say look out for 3-4 days from now

It seems like SOHO never messes up when everything is status quo


btw: i am giving you an award...as ATS's most active new member.

I use welding goggles to observe the sun and today I noticed, that it was unusually bright. I´ve looked at it since last summer, but never saw such thing - it´s always like a greenish cicle on black backround, but today it had big bright halo surrounding it. It also felt warmer today. I wonder why it´s not mentioned anywhere else. It´s quite interesting.

It does feel warmer where I'm at. I noticed that the other day but it's usually hot here in the desert southwest so I kind of paid no mind to it. When you're in direct sunlight though it does feel warmer than usual.

Posting this in both threads
I emailed nrl.navy.mil and asked if the "lens shield" (couldn’t think of occulting disk) had slipped and got this back:


Hi P

No it's not a "lens shield" -- we don't have those. And nothing slipped. One of the keys to understanding what's going on here is to notice the location of the "pylon" -- the arm that holds the solid occulting disk in the center of the image. Notice that it's in the lower-left corner, then we have a data gap of a few hours, and then it's in the upper-right corner and straight away the images are looking a little odd. What happened here is we rotated SOHO by 180-degrees, as we do approximately every ~3-months. So this explains the pylon moving. The reason the images go kinda funky is because our data processing relies on using a "background model" to removed excess background brightness form the images and make our pictures look pretty, the way you see them. The raw, unprocessed files (which are freely and readily available online!) are a lot uglier than those nice blue or red ones you see online. So this background model I refer to is necessary for making the pretty pics, but to make a good background model we need at least 3-days of data at a given roll angle, otherwise we have to use an old model from a previous roll, or one from the same time the previous year, both of which are sub-optimal. Therefore, immediately after SOHO rolls, we are unable to make images that look as pretty as you are used to, and they will typically look either very bright, very dark, or a mixture of bright and dark areas. After a few days, we will have enough data to make our background model and we will go back and reprocess those files. The original, raw data files always remain unchanged though.

A large proportion of the strange-looking images that you see are a result of our automated processing software doing something weird with the data when we get bad images. So I always encourage people to locate the original raw data files and look at those before leaping to dramatic conclusions!


Happy to help out, as always!

Best wishes,~~Karl

Thanks much Karl, you’ve been a big help, as always.
