I went to the SOHO website and observed something I've never seen before...the Sun actually flips from east to west...I have provided the link, but you have to follow the instructions since I'm a newby and not as savvy as the veteran Gods.

Here is the link: SOHO Link

Instructions:

1. Image Type Select: HMI Magnetogram

2. Resolution Select: 512

3. Start Date: 2011-10-12
End Date: 2011-10-13

4. Click Search Button (Bottom right of screen)

Look forward to constructive feedback.

I see what you are talking about, hopefully Phage or someone else with a decent understanding of SOHO can explain this. To me, I'm going to assume it's related to how the images are converted into video but even that doesn't really explain why the sun appears to actually flip.

Interesting find, but I'm fairly certain the sun didn't physically flip like that.

Maybe we flipped?


J/K. I have seen some stuff on this before but never a explanation.

The lenses can be flipped. I've seen many threads about this.

Re-positioning of the lens^^^

Star for clearing it up for me.
I have been thinking about if since i saw that thread, but never got around to actually keep looking at the thread.
Cheers.

I went to the soho website and found this:
SOHO Calendar
The spacecraft supposed to roll 180 degrees on the 20th October... maybe nasa is in rush

To be exact, it rolls to keep the high gain antenna pointed towards earth.

Funny coincidence this is happening on Oct. 13th, same date as Fatima`s (Portugal) "Miracle of the Sun" (Oct. 13th 1917).



The Miracle of the Sun (Portuguese: O Milagre do Sol) was an event on 13 October 1917 in which 30,000 to 100,000 people, who were gathered near Fátima, Portugal, claimed to have witnessed extraordinary solar activity.




The sun was then reported to have careened towards the earth in a zigzag pattern

So the sun was careening toward the earth, eh? I'm glad it missed!


That just goes to show 100,000 witnesses aren't necessarily any better than 1 witness. We all make terrible eyewitnesses!

In the other thread you posted something saying the roll was for calibration purposes:

I suppose there is more than one reason it can roll.

There are a couple of reasons I believe, yes.

Right now it's entering what's called a keyhole period.

Right. And it's scheduled for the 180 degree roll on Oct 20 related to that keyhole.

So it was expected on Oct 20: soho.nascom.nasa.gov...

I don't know if they just did that roll a week early, or if they still plan a roll on the 20th and this roll was for another reason.

No idea on that one!

I'll email them to find out...

ETA:

No need, here's more information from SDO blog:


Today we start several calibration maneuvers, one each week for three weeks. First is the HMI Roll, scheduled to run for 7.5 hours starting at 1800 UTC (2 pm ET). Data will flow during this maneuver, whose purpose is to measure the optical properties of the HMI and AIA instruments. Although in the past we have seen the Sun flip over during the roll, the processing of the images should remove this effect. After that we have:

October 19: 1315 UTC (9:15 am ET) EVE Field of view; 1630 UTC (12:30 pm ET) HMI/AIA Flat-Field

October 26: 1830 UTC (2:30 pm ET) EVE Cruciform (4.5 hours)

October 27: Fall handover season ends

SOHO is still entering this keyhole period though....but the roll we saw was from SDO.

Lets get to the original question;



Does the Sun flip or is it a Computer Glitch?


Yes the sun flips. I have no idea what you mean by flip but lets get into it a bit more. THE SUN has no poles, it can polar shift at will, it really doesn't matter to a star you see. Stars are not planets orbiting stars, they are like, well, actually stars!

Don't get me wrong, a star has an equator, poles, and all of those things of rotating bodies but they are different, they initiate nuclear fission, and that doesn't need a rotation or poles, it requires extreme gravitational forces, (unlike what EU believers what to spew).

The sun flips its poles all the time and that is normal because it is inconsequential to anything a star does, which mainly is fission of hydrogen to heavier elements that brought you to consciousness.

Now what were you talking about?
