Select either LASCO 2 or 3, set to "movie", put 10 in "Latest Images, click "search" on the link below;

That was something I haven't seen before, and I watch these movies pretty regularly. That was amazing. Looks like it went straight into the sun. Huge!

WOW!!! Okay every time I've seen these videos it has been pretty easily explainable in terms of a broken pixel or something. This is absolutely incredible!!! It looks like a comment going straight into the sun!

It's very interesting , but hard to put into scale without knowing just how far away it is .

Could be a minor comet or a piece of rock caught in the suns gravitational pull.

Nice find , all the same .

That is just an assumption though, isn't it?

I really don't know much about this thing. I have looked at these types of pics before, but haven't really tried too much to understand it.

Without a 3D image it's hard to tell, but isn't it possible this was somewhere in between the sun and us?

Just a comet heading into the sun. Looks pretty cool though.

How often does that update? The last image was 02:48 and you could see a flash in the upper right arc before the video looped. I'd like to see the next bit of time after that to see what else happened.

I believe it updates every 12 minutes. Run a movie with the date starting yesterday, for example.

You can run the movies for longer periods too. It takes a while to load sometimes, depending on your connection speed and computers specs, but it's worth waiting for most of the time. Interesting stuff goes on out there in space. It's not at all the empty place they told you it was in your science classes in school.

id say a comet either going into the sun or going around it remember the white circle is the sun and it doesnt look to go into the sun just around it dont know if there are any known comets/asteroids to be going round the sun now ior could be a new one interesting stuff tho thanks for the heads up

Perhaps surprisingly, "looks like" is just that sort of thing that means "it looks like", not "it went". What was your point, exactly?

Again cheers guys for all the feed back, bit early maybe in the thread but it is appreciated, like i said i am no expert in these matters but i like the current possible explanations/views so far in response to this object;

Great find. Someone had a thread going on about this earlier in the evening. They were even making predictions on the time it would strike the Sun, assuming that it did.

My point? Well it would be 1 of these 2-

A: The point could have been that I wanted you to give me a smartazz reply.
OR
B: It could be the extremely obvious point, that I was asking a question.

A comet just discovered by amateur astronomer Sergey Shurpakov is diving past the sun today, and it will probably not survive. recorded by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory--and check back for updates in the hours ahead.

There is probably a really simple explination to this but why does the comet move at such a slower speed to the rest of the 'stuff' flying about and why is it going towards the sun when the other 'stuff' is or seems to be travelling away from the sun?

Is it size related or is the 'stuff' from the sun adn the comet has it's own 'thrust' and direction etc etc?

All the "other" stuff is Energetic particles emitted by the sun towards earth

Will James T Kirk and his rag tag crew aboard a Klingon Bird of Prey save the world from total destruction? Find out in next weeks episode "Return of the Whales"!

Amazing picture by the way....though I kept seeing red circles flash everywhere when I moved my eyes, lol
edit on 11-5-2011 by westrock2000 because: props to the picture

Also do we have any idea of distance in that picture? We have a good reference of time. Just wondering how fast this baby was moving towards its demise. I know distance might be a little tricky as this is moving three dimensionally towards the sun in this picture and not a simple X/Y movement.
