I was just browsing the NASA Soho site and I watched the most recent LASCO C3 movie. What the hell happens on the 2012-01-23. Looks like the satellite goes into overtime... anyone ? Would love some explanation

It's due to the recent solar flare.

Solar protons accelerated by this morning's M9-class solar flare are streaming past Earth. On the NOAA scale of radiation storms, this one ranks S3, which means it could, e.g., cause isolated reboots of computers onboard Earth-orbiting satellites and interfere with polar radio communications. An example of satellite effects: The "snow" in this SOHO coronagraph movie is caused by protons hitting the observatory's onboard camera

I believe that is a video of the flare they are refering to as the biggest in 6/7 years. jawdropping if I do say so myself, all the crazyness your seeing is uncountable amounts of charged particles spraying across space.
