Five hours of data is missing from SECCHI-A COR2 from 20131119 @ 1154 hours to 1654 hours.
..........check out the massive flare that abruptly erupted at 1100 hours. Something is not right with our SUN and I think the next two weeks will be interesting.
That sure is one mighty old flare up.
Lets say this isn't just a normal CME, and put on our tin foil hats.
Does anyone know the general travel time for a rocket from earth to the sun? and have there been any launches recently that match that?
With the MSM recently plugging global warming/climate change again, I'm wondering if TPTB are now shooting nukes into the sun to destabilise a region and affect our planets weather from the outside.
Stranger things have happened, and tin foil hats off.
I've checked but seen no announcements for the 5 hours worth of "missing" frames.
According to NASA flight projections, the comet would flyby the sun and continue its orbit without having an appreciable impact on either the sun or the Earth. Real time photographs of the comet by the SOHO satellite positioned between the Sun and Earth showed the comet's passage around the sun (for NASA's projected passage, see image on left). As predicted, the comet appeared very large, with some estimates of its coma (gases, ice, etc., surrounding the core) up to four times the size of Jupiter while having a planet sized core up to the size of Mercury.
On its passage past the sun on Feb 18, an enormous solar flame moves towards the comet as though to strike it in the fashion of a lightning bolt (image time-dated 2002/2/18 06:54). Just before what appears to be a critical impact, the images from SOHO's LASCO 3 corona graph, stop for a critical seven hours, when they resume, the next image (time dated one hour later), shows that the solar flame has disappeared, and what appears to be the remains of a crude cut and paste effort involving the comet
