Of course opinions can be wrong.
And in this case, you're wrong.
Size of objects seen on SOHO, STEREO etc is extremely hard to discern, unless of course you know exactly what they are and even then, the distances
and perspectives involved play tricks on the eyes...
Take this image for example...
There are 3 easily identifiable objects there, Jupiter, Mercury and the Pleiades star cluster.
Jupiter is over 3000 times the size of Mercury, yet appears to be the same size.
The accumulated mass of the Pleiades is around 800 times that of the sun yet the stars appear as small dots.
You can't judge the size of an unknown object on a 2 dimensional image, especially
when it's viewing the vastness of space.
A tiny dot could be a giant star hundreds of light years away, or it could be a particle of dust millimeters from the lens...
Do you understand?
