HAARP in Alaska remains shuttered for the 8th day with server updates. Got any tinfoil?

And just where in the heck is part of the sun in this image from SOHO?

SOHO Coverup by NASA? Emergency Sun Reacquisition.

Is NASA covering up a gigantic UFO sighting on the SOHO cameras?

At least one sharp-eyed observer thinks so and it’s not the first time. SOHO’s live image stream was recently shut down right after viewers spotted a large anomaly in front of the sun. NASA says it was due to a “false trigger of the Coarse Sun Pointing Attitude Anomaly Detector” which could be a fancy way of saying “dust on the lens”. via http://www.anomalist.com/

We have no idea, (well we do have some ideas) as to what the heck the horizontal line is in front of the sun.  We highly doubt it is dust. The image is only showing up of the SOHO LASCO C3 Latest Image. Not on any of the others which you can view here-http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/data/realtime-images.html and the live feed for LASCO is here http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/data/LATEST/current_c3.gif

It’s fair to rule out a bird, a plane and Superman.

NOTE: LACK OF DATA UPDATES. SOHO went into “Emergency Sun Reacquisition” mode on Friday May 4, 2012, caused by a false trigger of the Coarse Sun Pointing Attitude Anomaly Dector. We are working on the recovery of the spacecraft to normal mode. Nominal science operations should be re-established in the next couple of days. http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread838119/pg1

This isn’t the first time NASA has lost SOHO- or SOHO has lost Earth.

At 23:16 GMT on 24 June 1998, after completing its nominal two-year
mission in April 1998, ground controllers lost contact with the SOHO
spacecraft during routine maintenance operations, and the satellite
went into Emergency Sun Reacquisition (ESR) mode. The ESR mode is
activated when an anomaly occurs and the spacecraft loses its
orientation towards the Sun. When this happens, the spacecraft
automatically tries to point itself towards the Sun again by firing its
attitude control thrusters under the guidance of an onboard Sun
sensor.  Efforts to re-establish nominal operations did not succeed and
telemetry was lost, not to be reestablished for several weeks.  http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/operations/Recovery/recovery_diary.html

The findings claimed,

“No fault on the spacecraft contributed to the mishap.”

Our friends from www.spaceweather.com have this to say-

TWO INCOMING CMEs: A pair of solar eruptions on May 7th hurled coronal mass ejections (CMEs) toward Earth. Forecast tracks prepared by analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab suggests that clouds with arrive in succession on May 9th at 13:40 UT and May 10th at 07:54 UT (+/- 7 hours). The double impact could spark moderate geomagnetic storms. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras.

Sunspot AR1476. May 7, 2012.

One of the largest sunspot groups in years rotated over the sun’s northeastern limb this weekend. With a least four dark cores larger than Earth, AR1476 sprawls more than 100,000 km from end to end, and makes an easy target for backyard solar telescopes.  http://www.thetruthbehindthescenes.org/

CME’s and maybe incoming space crafts?¬† Be curious to watch the magnetometers, quake reports and skies in the coming days.

Stay tuned and have a good day, one day it will be your last.  God Bless.

A full-disk multiwavelength extreme ultraviolet image of the sun taken by SDO on March 30, 2010

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, SDO the¬†space telescope designed to study the sun released it’s first images this week and they are spectacular.

Launched on February 11th from Cape Canaveral, the observatory has spent the past two months moving into a geosynchronous orbit and activating its instruments. As soon as SDO’s telescope doors opened, the spacecraft began beaming back scenes so beautiful and puzzlingly complex that even seasoned observers were stunned, reported NASA.

“The Helioseismic Magnetic Imager (HMI) is performing splendidly,” reports HMI principal investigator Phil Scherrer of Stanford University. “We’re getting very high-quality, high signal-to-noise data.”

The Extreme UV Variability Experiment (EVE) is online, too, “and we’re getting great data as well,” says principal investigator Tom Woods of the University of Colorado, Boulder.

EVE monitors the sun where it is most variable‚ÄĒin the extreme UV part of the electromagnetic spectrum. At these wavelengths, the brightness of the sun can rise and fall a hundredfold in the blink of an eye, heating and “puffing up” Earth’s upper atmosphere, and dragging down satellites. EVE measures these changes with unprecedented time and spectral resolution.¬† http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2010/21apr_firstlight/

HMI and EVE and the entire SDO seems to be operating splendidly, but¬†unfortunately it took¬†three weeks for NASA to reveal¬†any¬†images. Unprecedented time should allow for real time images, but us mere earthlings will have to wait another month for daily images.¬† The implications of such detailed events on the sun will surely have this tinfoil hat wearing observer looking to coordinate data, to earth events like volcano’s and earthquakes.

The observatory is still being commissioned, and a good deal of testing and calibration remains to be done before regular, daily images become available in mid-May.

SOHO MDI Image. A bald sun for today.

Spotless Days
Current Stretch: 8 days
2010 total: 15 days (13%)
2009 total: 260 days (71%)
Since 2004: 785 days
Typical Solar Min: 485 days via http://www.spaceweather.com/

All looks calm on the sun today, unless you look at the images from STEREO from behind. 

Itunes offers a free app for SOHO (SOHO Viewer) and also STEREO (3D Sun) and for $1.99 the Solar Monitor app is well worth it in providing additional information with the images.  All three are in near real time.

Someone needs to comes up with an application that links solar activity to earthquakes and volcano’s, but it won’t be me.¬† Maybe take it farther to coordinate with seismographs around the world?

If one exists, do tell or share your favorite app or link in the comment section for space and science news.

While the sun has had no sunspots for 8 days, here on the 3rd planet  from the sun, Earth is still tumultuous.

There have been three 5+M Earthquakes this morning alone: Bio Bio Chile 5.9M, Eastern New Guinea 5.3M, Guam 5.4.

The Eyjafjallaj√∂kull volcano in Iceland has ongoing eruptions.¬†http://en.vedur.is/Much of¬†Europe air travel seems to be operational, either flying above or below the invisible ash cloud. The Shiveluch, and Kliuchevskoi volcano’s in Russia are showing increased seismic activity and increased thermal anomalies as well.¬†

The Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System provides near real-time alerts about natural disasters around the world at http://www.gdacs.org/ 

A pat on the back to The Solar Dynamics Observatory team.¬† Now get busy¬†so we can see what’s going on up there, because down here the Earth sure seems pissed.¬†¬†

Mmmm, I wonder if you turned the SDO toward earth for images what we would discover. 

Don’t for forget about the LYRID METEOR SHOWER: It peaked¬†yesterday, April 22nd and is caused by¬†the Earth passing¬†through a stream of debris from Comet Thatcher (C/1861 G1). The best time to look is during the hours before dawn.
