What is this thing near the Sun? Is it a comet or meteorite? It hangs out for at least a week.

Okay, I'm messing on the helioviewer.org... on Stereo B, You have this bright object that comes in and leaves. It can't be a planet because it looks too squashed for that, and I was trying to make a movie but I got a new hard drive and it won't open my other files from the old hard drive.. If someone can make a movie of this I would appreciate it. :p

Anyways, What do you think this is?

Surprised it hasn't been talked about.

Stereo B
COR 2
Nov. 24th to Dec. 1st

Video of it



So that is a whole week that this thing just hangs around the Sun.

So I know it's no lens flare or a fake artifact...


Looks to bright to even be a satellite.

would be helpful to get a few more pics of it. Especially in reference to the sun.

I've never used that software so I won't be of much help.

I would also like to add...that even if you think it's not a lens flare or artifact...soon someone will come and tell you that it is

Trying to make a movie of it right now. Got to find the software first.

Is this in the upper left corner an outline of the Sun? At first glance it appears as an explosion on the sun..perhaps?

Is this thing stationary? is it moving? Brightness changing?

No, for a full week, it comes in, crosses horizontally and then leaves the same way. It never hits the Sun or even comes out of the Sun but the explosion from the sun I think it makes it brighter. Ugh, so aggravating. Trying to get this on a movie so I can show you all.

It's a planet.

To be exact, it's mercury.



You can plot the planets in realtion to the sats here.

Is that thing not Venus or Mercurius? It's planet-sized...

ETA: boncho was faster than me

Lense flare? Only kidding, look forward to an explanation....

helioviewer.org...



Wow...just seen the video. Pretty cool looking. To big to be a satelit for sure.

Can we exclude a bright planet like Venus passing by?

What's the time frame on this pass ?

Time frame is from Nov. 24 through Dec. 1st.

Since when is Mercury that squashed? Shouldn't it be round?

Yeah, light works in mysteries ways, it can make a rock on Mars look like a rodent, as seen in an ATS thread earlier this monrth.

Great thread OP thanks for the link to site...it is great to find new sites provided here by ATS members.
Have no opinion on what the occurence is personally.
But will visit site regularly and try and learn.

No it's not a planet are you serious?

It wouldn't give off light like that. It's not reflecting light it's actually illuminating it's own.



^ Look at that heat shield. Or some type of shield. It's obviously experiencing friction.

That wouldn't happen with Mercury.

This picture is towards the end of the Video. After the passing.



Now it has 2 heat shields? Receiving friction from both sides?

This is why I don't think it's a planet.

Look how small the object was when it was almost in the middle of Cor2 and the sun..




^ WHY SO SMALL? WHY THE CHANGE OF SIZE IF IT'S A PLANET?

Not only that, OP I'd like to make it aware to you that we miss nearly a day in your video.

The jump is from 27-29. We do not see 11/28/12. When the object is directly in the middle.

It takes Mercury 88 days to rotate around the sun.

It's not Mercury.

I would say it was mercury to, to explain the changing "shape" i would automatically assume it is like earth different sides being lit at different times by the sun for example like the different crests of the moon, we know that its round but to the eye in certain crests its a bitten biscuit. Mercury is my answer with different angles of light reflecting.

That was the best I could do. I went by how helioviewer set it up. So if it skipped a day then it has to be them. You know how they like to block stuff out. lol

I don't think it's a planet either.

OP is using Stereo B Cor 2

Here is the passage of Mercury between Stereo B.



The date of the passage.

Positions of STEREO A and B for 2012-10-06 00:00 UT

Now that means Mercury has already passed through Stereo B.

So that means another 88 days for it to orbit back to Stereo B.

The video is showing an Object pass through Stereo B on 11/28/12 which we cannot see because it's taken from the video.

That is too short of time for Mercury to orbit around again.
