This image may be a new one.I read on MSNNEWs that a huge solar flare just recently exploded form the sun. But it also said it was NOT headed our way.

Ohh just so you know. If you get a pic like this again, if it was going to hurt us (solar flare) it would have happend 7 minutes after the flare erupted. So, there's really no preparing for it. You already have your answer, no need to worry.

I had the same question. I am confused as to what is being said

yea the tranisition that occurs at midnight is very suspicious
also the black line that heads from the sun to the 1-2 o'clock position seems to have a hell of a lot of activity compared to the rest of area around it.


The black line is the arm from the camera to the occulter that's blocking the direct light of the Sun, it's often seen as 'fuzzy'

i thought this bears a 2 to 3 day window before earth impact (in most cases) and is kinda why the vatican has their paws on this

interesting stuff. There are no alerts as far as I can tell.

here is a great resource if you are interested.

I'm willing to bet that it is nothing...as always on here. Someone like Phage will come in and provide a good explanation until then we can continue to panic.

The dark area is an area of relatively low activity from the Sun, combined with the fact that there is higher (brighter) activity in other areas. The brighter regions cause the lesser active region to darken (SOHO can't go brighter, so the non-bright areas go darker).

Here's a similar (though much smaller) darkening effect during a bright CME:

ok that is quite an image there
i wonder if that region that blew away was dark before and afterwards

is there any site up for current magnetosphere of earth you'd suggest?

Thanks for this! I just ran a google image search on "LASCO C3 flare" and it appears every flare captured, seems to have some non-lit areas just like the OP picture.

Before the CME, there was likely nothing so bright in the image, so there was probably nothing to cause any dark area. And the same for after the CME dissipated.

Since there's no obvious CME or extremely bright flare occurring in the image you posted, it's likely mainly just an area of reduced activity (basically, less light). And it was just temporary...the dark area is gone now.

SOHO wiped their last EIT movies from the past two days on the third and fourth image[s]. The LASCO movies transition, so it seems, more quickly, as well.


I see that it is indeed showing data from the 1st and 2nd, but if you go here:
SOHO Movies you can type in the date range and choose LASCO 3 and find the archive for the 3rd - 4th. HOWEVER... it does not show the weird anomaly the the OP's pic shows, or the youtube vid.

OP, where did you get your comparison pic from?

last night i grabbed that still image off of soho's page itself
i guess they saw it was starting to make a buzz so they changed it.

you'll see where someone replied stating my image wasn't showing up so i linked him direct

today
when i use the same link i supplied to the other member...they changed it
strange or common play

myself i made the comparison for clarity and to illustrate what i was questioning

I don't know whether the image is odd or not.

What I do know, is that when we are supposed to be in solar maximum, the sun is acting like its solar minimum.

This is very strange. We are supposed to be seeing the peak of solar cycle 24 occuring between now and next year.... But its oddly silent. I wonder if this has anything to do with dec 21.

I too went to the soho site to put in dates and watch the movie. Though not the anomaly that the OP posted, there is a very weird thing going on. While playing the movie the one with the time stamp of 2012/12/04 12:18 and the with the time stamp 2012/12/04 12:42 are identical. There is one frame between the two that is time stamped 2012/12/04 12:30 that does not match the sequence.


Seems to me someone is trying to hide something, because the images aren't even close.

In order to make details of the corona and CMEs more visible a "background mask" is applied to the images. The process is called background subtraction and uses a "stack" of past images to create a brightness map in order to remove bright areas that don't change over time.

What happened is that the background mask was updated. This is done on a regular basis.

Looks normal to me...don't see anything unusual. Just check this link out from another perspective.

No they aren't

Here is 12:30
