I check on space weather sites often, and have been for years, never came across anything like this.
Is there someone that can explain what it is we are seeing?




sol.spacenvironment.net...

could I get help from a ATS wiz with posing image for all to see?

No clue as to what that is. Maybe it is a pixel overload if it got hit by a CME

It has happened before...

I;m not sure why it is pixelated, but that thing in the middle (that looks like a spoon) is part of the telescope. It's the "occulting disk", which what helps block out the brightness of the sun...

such as in this image ("arm" of occulting disk seen at 7 o'clock position):




The occulting disk is usually used for LASCO images of the corona (the disk blocks out, or "occults" the sun so the corona becomes visible), so I'm not sure why it is showing up in the EIT (extreme ultraviolet imaging telescope) instrument images.

Obviously a glitch of some sort. I don't think the occulting disk is supposed to be in those EIT images.

Helioviewer is down also. This is kind of weird considering today is when massive sunspots begin to face Earth. The site has been working all week now this...

Its back up (had to use bing) and it appears to show a massive prominence 15 minutes ago. Its a large arch of plasma. Haven't seen anything like this in a while.

I've talked to.. well, emailed people at NASA about this before. That crazy pixilation occurs when ionizing radiation directly interferes with the imaging sensor. The "spoon" shape is the shadow of the sensor. This only happens when coronal material contacts the satellite.. It happens often with the EUVI 195 Stereo imager ..
