Looks like a huge meteor storm on LASCO at the moment... ・_・

Hi Finbarr.
A big thank-you for giving us this image.
Can you tell us what LASCO is?

Good meteors here!

Happy New Year for 2021 from Aubrey.

Hi Gents, I usually follow the SOHO Observatory satellite Lasco C3 camera at this time of year to see our beautiful milkyway behind our sun. That image is a strange one.

You can also see an animation here to show our orbit around our sun, just pick the last two days as dates for example

AND, if you look closley at M24 above the sun ,there is a little comet ;-)

Good to hear from you, Keith!
And thank you for explaining what the Lasco camera is.

So maybe these are not meteors at all.

And I do see that little smudge of a comet also.

Happy New Year to you, Keith.
By the way, is it not happy new decade too?

Ha Ha!

Well, it was some sort of artifact no doubt. Image back to normal now anyway -
