Your wrong Swanny...If it's a lens flare it would move around with the camera with different positions...take a look the camera it moves around... but the spot stays in the same position!!!

Well, some strange anomolies with the sun and around at the moment...as we all know...

Could have something to do with this..

the "nibiru" youtube shots are about a month old...people seeing (and photographing) a second "sun" in the southern sky in Australia? Is this the Blue Kachina? Hope memory serves...will look thru my bookmarks to see: was it an Avalon thread? Anyone remember these?

Follow the money is always a good clue! I just wish we could get some really good data and pics from a white hat.

There were one or two threads about this here about 2-3 months ago. That's the best I can recall. Hope it helps.

Mmmm lots of recent Earthquakes lately....

Is it linked to this?

Sunspot 1026 emerges on the Sun -Spaceweather September 22, 2009

"Sunspot 1026 emerged yesterday to break a string of 19 consecutive spotless days. It's about as wide as Earth, which makes it an easy target for backyard solar telescopes. The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) has measured the spot's magnetic polarity and identified it as a member of new Solar Cycle 24. Could this be a harbinger of more to come? (Apparently so.) Stay tuned. "

Looks bigger than the previous 1024

It's the planet Mercury.

The shot is from STEREO B (behind)

As you can see in the pic below Mercury is just to the right of the Sun from SB's location

Thanks Linda...very strange that they missed that date out!!!

Also found this...The cosmic rays that are reaching us now are the highest for 50 years....I thought they woulod maximise by 2011?!!

Cosmic Rays

In addition to solar particles, another highly energetic particle from the Milky Way galaxy reaches Earth's atmosphere all the time. Cosmic rays can damage electronic systems and even DNA in living creatures.


When a high-energy cosmic ray enters the atmosphere,
it can cause an air shower. The cosmic ray hits a molecule
in the atmosphere and breaks up, producing lots more sub-atomic
particles. The cosmic ray (red center top) breaks up into sub-atomic particles
that can include protons (green), neutrons (orange), pions (yellow),
muons (purple), photons (blue), and electrons & positrons (pink).
Illustration by Randy Russell, NASA and NCAR.

The number of cosmic rays reaching Earth are lower when the sun is active and has a strong, turbulent magnetic field that interferes with cosmic ray travel. But when the sun is not active, more cosmic rays reach Earth. The sun is supposed to be in an increasingly active period of Solar Cycle 24 with a solar maximum originally expected in 2011 to 2012. But the sun has been abnormally quiet. Scientists have not seen such a low sunspot number since around 1913, the beginning of the 20th Century. Further, the magnetic field of the sun is at the lowest magnetic field strength measured in at least fifty years from the beginning of the Space Age.

A collision between a high-energy cosmic ray particle and an atom
in a photographic emulsion, as viewed through a microscope.

At the August 3 to 7, 2009, at the Solar Heliospheric and Interplanetary Environment (SHINE) meeting in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Richard Mewaldt, Ph.D., Senior Research Associate in Physics at the California Institute of Technology Kahill Astrophysics Laboratory in Pasadena, presented his latest ACE data on cosmic ray intensity change since April 2009, the last six months.

Pls look at post 2677 & 2678...........from 9-29-09 double sun.......
also, the Sun appears very large & more to the south in the Eastern sky than usual.............. any notations of Earth wobbling more or some movement of the alignments????????? It has been warmer than usual here too......(Florida)


oops......here is link: http://projectavalon.net/forum/showt...=8441&page=108

Incoming CME folks, small one but should still look pretty nice at high latitudes

For all you sun lovers ... apparently the biggest so far this year!! mmmm..

BIG AND ACTIVE: Sunspot 1029, the biggest and most active sunspot of 2009, continues to put on a good show. Pete Lawrence sends this picture from his backyard observatory in Selsey, UK:

"The 'snake pit' of activity next to the main spot showed lots of intricate changes including the development of several intense star-like points," he says.

The sunspot has been crackling with minor C-class solar flares since it emerged a few days ago. Magnetic fields around the spot have been growing more complex, making stronger eruptions increasingly likely. NOAA forecasters estimate a 5% chance of an M-class flare in the next 24 hours. Stay tuned for solar activity!

Hi, I do not understand the picture. What are points A and B?

If I am in south Texas what planet is rising before the sun? I thought it was Venus.
I hope it's Venus.

There are 2 spacecraft that are moving towards opposite sides of the sun so we will be able to always see the full globe. Both are in the same orbit as Earth STEREO A is the one Ahead of us and STEREO B is the one Behind us hence A & B.

these are the images the spacecrafts are sending back


As for the planet rising in the East, yep its Venus, Mars is there too but not as bright.

These pictures are stunning. Glad I don't have to look at the sun directly to see it's beauty, thanks so much.

I have often thought Venus was my other home planet.

This looks a biggy!!

Coronagraphs onboard the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) observed a bright double-ringed coronal mass ejection (CME) billowing over the sun's western limb during the late hours of Feb. 1st. At present, the source of the blast is unknown. Watch the movie and stay tuned for updates.
