The large, round object could be some sort of imaging artifact. The page linked below gives many examples of artifacts seen in images from this instrument. I looked through these without finding any that appeared convincingly like the one under discussion here.
The remarks about the way a sphere should be lighted by the Sun, to the right, are well taken. It occurs to me, though, that a sphere that was intrinsically darker in the lower part, as seen in this image, could appear like this. Will look into the possibility of inquiring about the image further, and report back here if anything is learned.

Looking at the series of images, a lens flare seems more probable. I see a thin ring or halo around the 'object' at about one radii. The 'object' does seem to move gradually to the left a bit. The light values appear to be rather oddly rendered, rapidly switching from positive to negative.

That is definitely Cheesy, sitting on top of that thing, trying to get us the best pics and the truth! God love him.

Here's the images from that time range.
02:09 to 06:09

As you can see it doesn't "move" into the field of view, but just arrives in place and FADES out gradually.

Like an internal reflection would.





No, did see what you just described, just arrives, fades in and out of view.

its Nibiru,

but its hiding because You and other skeptical people are viewing the image.




If we turn our heads and believers keep looking, it should pop up again

Hello

I was a little worried about this. Will we be ok?
Thank you kindly.

I think we're pretty okay, if that object was real we would be history due to gravity forces

I think they rolled the spacecraft 180 degrees putting the sun on the opposite side of the image,which left some kind of retention. Either that or its a spacecraft close to the camera. If it was anything like a planet we would have seen in in the sky. So yes we will be alright.

Okay. I know I am going to regret sharing this experience here. I had promised myself I was going to take this memory to my grave without saying anything to anyone about it, but here it goes.

I spent Thanksgiving up in the mountains with family. My family is quite large and I have always had a love of the sky and books, earning me the labels of "bookworm", "nerd", "geek" and now the "info junkie".

No one was interested in sky watching, and none were surprised that I was outside with several binoculars mapping the sky. When it was time to gather everyone for the the pre meal blessings I went in the house. The upstairs was packed and the little ones were in and out and all about, so I decided to put my binoculars away some place safe and took them downstairs to my bedroom. As I turned to walk out the door I caught a glimpse of a large round object in the sky just below the sun. It stopped me dead in my tracks.

My reaction was one of great doubt. I asked myself what the hell is it? It was difficult to keep it in view because the sun was so bright and I had to look in the direction sun without looking directly at the sun. I didn't have any special filters to aid in identifying what I was looking at.

I decided it had to be a reflection coming through the glass, so I went outside. Now I had the deck over my head blocking out my direct view of the sun, I didn't see it again right away because I was looking in the wrong direction. In fact I had to go back in the house to see if it was still there and it was, but it was much further from the sun then was where I had been looking. I went back outside and tried to find it again and unfortunately I was able to see it without the window being in the way. Tried to see with the binoculars, it was tricky, but I could see it. I puzzled over that object for at least 15 minutes because my Mom and sister came hunting for me.

I started to show them, but something held me back. I decided I would show my family after we had eaten. Later I thought about it and decided I didn't have enough information to say anything. I spent the rest of the afternoon trying to find someone or something on the net about it. I didn't see or hear anything so I have tried to push it out of my mind until I find a reasonable explanation for what I saw.

It looked exactly like the sphere in the picture. Just put it in a blue sky with a big sun beside it, but put it below the sun, the same distance but on the right side not the left. It didn't emit rays like the sun and I know it sound crazy but it seemed to look like it would be cold if you were near it.

I will admit it made me feel very uneasy. I am not making any claims as to what it is or isn't. I am completely clueless to what it was. The only thing I am completely sure of is that it was "not" a reflection in the window, not in the panes or reflected off the panes.

I kept replaying the warning they gave about viewing the event; "Under no circumstances, attempt to view ISON's journey to the sun."Watch the event on your computer". I hope someone somewhere so saw it and I hope someone has decent equipment and was able to catch a picture of it.

That doesn't look like a planet, it looks more like an egg.
Maybe that might be worse.

Trillium
Here more strange
the HI black and blue
the HI_SREM grey and
the HI_STARs black and blue
all have a erase portion on the left side just blank off


Sure make you think


I hate that glasses Smiley. Makes the user look cocky as if they've found something that no one else could see.

its just the arm that holds the disk used to protect the lens from direct sun rays

here is the url, I cant post it as a link

While others are saying , it is some image artifact sheites, you have actually
seen this object with naked eyes, makes it very significant indeed.

Do Camera anomalies have bow shocks too?

Whatever he saw may not be the same thing in the OP's image.

As I mentioned before, the object is not lit properly to be really there, considering the location of the Sun (which, going by the CMEs and solar wind rays, is just out of frame to the right center).

Plus, as has been shown, the object fades in and out in subsequent frames. The fact that it is improperly lit to be an object in that position, and the fact that it fades in and out of view (and came be seen very tenuously and very transparent in at least one frame) makes me lean heavily toward camera anomaly.

The object may be improperly lit, but it is still lit like
a 3 D object, whereas a camera anomaly would show a hopelessly
2 D artifact imo.

Any round artifact (whether it be a camera artifact or some other artifact caused by the data acquisition of the STEREO spacecraft) that is brighter on one side that the other can look like a 3D sphere. That doesn't make it a 3D sphere.

If it was really there, then why do we see it almost faded away and transparent in subsequent images taken around the same time as the OP's image?

As I said before, I am clueless to what it was. I also said I would not even attempt to guess. While not really guessing but exploring possibilities, I would like to throw out a wild question. I know very little about cameras nor telescopes, so if this is a ridiculously stupid question, I will take my licks, but please be gentle.

Is if possible for a camera or telescope to project an anomaly or artifact; similar to the likes of projecting a movie or hologram, by accident?

With the comet being described as unusually bright, and the sun being amazingly bright from another angle, could it cause an image to be reflected as a solid image from the lens of the devices?

If two bright objects are shining on the same object, would it cast an altered shadow or create a reflected image that appears real?

I am doing a lousy job of trying to explain what I am trying to ask, but is anything like this possible.
