Solar observatory spacecraft real-time coronagraphs shows the latest 48 hours worth of data available from the Stereo Ahead spacecraft (COR2) as animated GIF movies. These coronagraphs are space-based telescopes that can see things very close to the Sun. They are updated every hour through a real-time uplink with the Stereo AHEAD spacecraft
This is a very nice opportunity NASA is giving us to see our Sun up close. And you can copy and paste the GIF image URL onto your own website and show them there. And I did that. See the results in the sidebar to your right for LASCO/C2 and LASCO/C3.
LASCO solar observatory coronagraph images
LASCO solar observatory coronagraph images is used by the SWPC forecast office to characterize the solar corona heating and transient events including CME‘s. And it is to see effects of the corona on the solar wind. Recently LASCO images is vital to the WSA-Enlil model that has been operational since 2011. WSA-Enlil is an important tool for forecasting the impact of Coronal Mass Ejections (CME).
LASCO C2 solar observatory image of a CME
There is an unbelievable image of a CME (Coronal Mass Ejections) on a LASCO C2 solar observatory image from 2003. A so-called X 17.2 flare (the second largest flare observed by SOHO) set off a “high energy proton”-event and a fast-moving Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) that hit the Earth early on Wednesday October 29th 2003. See the picture of the CME here
LASCO coronagraph instrument disturbances
The LASCO coronagraph instruments were built in the late 1980s and sometimes disturbances do happen. There are two types of problems that can occur repeatedly. 1). Blackouts and Whiteouts in broken lines, circle-like shapes, sometimes over the whole picture. 2). Black and white pixels occurring in patterns, without pattern or alone. Those “missing blocks” are telemetry dropouts, caused by radio interference or disturbance in the data transfer to Goddard Space Flight Center
You can actually see these disturbances in action live in the two LASCO animations on the right sidebar. They are all over the place and they are the coronagraph instrument disturbances seen as white pixels alone and in patterns.
Solar space weather phenomena and UFOs near the Sun
Since the twin STEREO (Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory) spacecraft were launched in October 2006, there have been numerous incidents of amazing solar space weather phenomena. Some solar space weather phenomena is absolutely extraordinary to see since it is planet-sized phenomena that could wipe out earth instantly.
But there is also some highly suspicious UFO objects that has been seen near the Sun with the help of NASA´s space-based solar observatory. Many of these are not UFOs or physical objects, but white pixels occurring in patterns. They are looking highly suspicious but don´t fool your self, there are explanations for the most.
The video above shows several examples of the white pixels occurring in patterns. These are probably not UFOs but simply disturbances in the instruments on the spacecrafts that looks suspicious. But sometimes something very odd is happening at our Sun. Not all can be classified as instrument disturbances but space weather phenomena (or a UFO)…
The video above shows an enormous UFO or space phenomenon. I don´t think this is a structural craft with alien crew members. This looks mostly as a natural phenomenon but what kind of phenomena that is in play here is a big mystery? Could it be plasma from the Sun in concentration kept in place by a strong magnetic field?
Keep an eye with the Sun on your website
Go to SOHO Real-Time GIF Movies and see for your self. Click on one of the observatories and see the GIF animation for the last 48 hours. In the address field in your browser you have the direct link to the animations. You can copy these links from the browser address field and insert them into your website, to show your visitors the amazing live observatory photography.
NASA is a government entity
NASA is a government entity that does not license the use of NASA materials or sign licensing agreements. The agency generally has no objection to the reproduction and use of these materials (audio transmissions and recordings; video transmissions and recording; or still and motion picture photography). That means you can use the material but keep the good vipe up and give them credit for their great work. The GIF movies are courtesy of the LASCO/NRL SOHO team.
