Ufos near the SUN - more NASA SOHO Images

The objects seen near the sun are making big news over the internet at the moment.
Below is some impressive footage taken from NASA's SOHO solar imaging program. These spheres are about the size of planet earth, and started showing up around Janurary 18th, 2010. Would like your take on what these could be?
Here are links from NASA for you to take a look yourself. http://stereo-ssc.nascom.nasa.gov/bro... http://stereo-ssc.nascom.nasa.gov/bro... http://stereo-ssc.nascom.nasa.gov/bro... http://stereo-sc.nascom.nasa.gov/bro...

I was wondering if you were gonna pick this one up. Looks legit to me, and insane.

If those are unnatural, can withstand those temperatures and are that big then goddamn that annunaki tech impresses me.

Um, don't you think they look more like distant stars with some sort of visual distortion artifact due to the proximity of their line of sight to the sun's corona? Just a thought.

These "UFO's" look like hot pixels artifacts to me.

I do a lot of digital astrophotography and I deal with this issue regularly. It's a common problem and the artifacts generated will morph slightly when converting to JPEG or compressed video and will look like what this video shows.

In CCD imaging, the detector always has some hot pixels that are lit up even though no light is hitting the detector. They will appear in the same spot in every image taken with a particular CCD camera. The hot pixels are usually subtracted out by dark subtraction. A "dark" is an image taken with the telescope cover closed or the camera shutter is closed. That "dark" image with the hot pixels is then digitally subtracted from each "light" frame and that removes the bright pixel and turns it dark. If multiple images are taken, they are aligned and "stacked" to improve signal to noise ratio.

In the stacked image, the black spots are subtracted hot pixels and the bright spots are hot pixels that were not subtracted out. In this case it looks like the frames were either not aligned properly or the dark subtraction didn't get every hot pixel or the intensity of the hot pixel was stronger or weaker than the dark's hot pixel signal, thereby causing the artifacts we see in the video.

Estoy de acuerdo con Mike. Y en mi caso me dedico al audiovisual desde hace 15 años. Aunque entiendo que su opinión en este asunto tiene más peso que la mía (beautyful models usually don´t present "artifacts").

Pero no puedo estar de acuerdo en todo. Sorry

Algunas de las supuestas death stars, son como mínimo, ridículas.
They are artifacts, obviously!

But... all of them?
Creo que no. Algunas son very stranges, so spherics...
Además, compañero ¿has visto las fotos en alta resolución de algunos de los casos más comprometidos?
They are retouched, "photoshoped" ¡¡ a lo bestia!!!

No sé...JPEG2000 suele provocar drops when there's a change of luminosity in one or more pixel between the interpolation. But Hires version are difused, asume using tampon and sponge. An authentic shoddy work, modestly I add.

Además, ¿conocéis un país llamado Chile? ¿Y otro llamado Haití?

I'm from Andalusia, Spain. You know... sun,beach,bulls and paella. No, my dears. ¡Ha llovido en dos meses más que en todo un año!
Pensad en global, descartad supercherías, sed cautos... and...
North American's people must learn and important lesson: Distrust of the factual powers. They ALLWAYS lies. Nos tratan como a ganado. I'm sorry, guys, but rich and the powerful ones deceive to us. Since waking up of times. If there outside were something They were not going away it to say to the son of Mrs. Smith, nonSir.

Awesome videos...NASA cannot cover this one up!

UFOS AROUND THE SUN

I'm starting to get impressed. For several years now people from around the world have been catching ufo's circling the sun and NASA has been slipping up occasionally by releasing untouched photo's. I do appreciate Mike's rationalizations although there is a huge difference between what it a relatively manual procedural technique re: hot pixel artifacts which simply not a concern with NASA imaging. Visual distortion of distant stars is also a good error proposal however due to incredible clarity around the edges of all of the objects seen highly unlikely.

I was just looking at SOHO images [LASCO 2 & 3] from the last few days to check flare activity when I thought I saw several bright objects orbiting the sun. Then, I happened upon this page. Wow! If that is not a confirmation.......

That is Noah's Ark if you understand the information provided by www.churchofcriticalthinking.org
This is no joke or paranoia. If the "leaders" of the world that know what is going on,would announce it what do you think earth's population would do. Next dimension that is going to be is "within". you better get started learning how to meditate if you do not know how. Those "aliens" are going to save us. Do you have any idea how big that "barge" is??? I do

It's strange that an expert in astrophotography comes watering down the significance of this images. It's true that hot pixels are a reality but then they should appear, as mentioned, in the same location every time the image is taken, which does not happen. Furthermore hot pixels are due to hardware defect, something not easily tolerable on a high caliber, scientific mission, neither would be sloppy image algorithms, both of which would dissolve the reliability as well as defy the purpose of the mission.

I am wondering if these "objects" might not be a naturally occuring phenomena which we simply are not familiar with yet? Otherwise, I believe there may also be something about the Sun's gravitational field bending the light coming from objects behind it, but in this case IT SEEMS unlikely this would allow an object to appear directly in front of the Sun as some of these do. They should show up near the edges of the Sun's disk, but I would not think the bending of light could be so significant as to place a 3D appearing object in front of the middle of our Sun.

How would a hot pixle have a shadow on the outward facing side and what looks like bright front facing side? And yes as the guy before me points out pixles would show stationary on the pics and yeah right that they would not have two or three redundancies that wouldn't allow that to happen plus enormous space budgets

Our sun is at an interesting time of its life undergoing a very energetic Solar Max. The energies it is releasing toward earth have an intrinsic effect on the evolution of life on Earth. Of course this will be watched by Scientists across the universe interested in which road the collective consciousness of Earth will take.

I was standing outside yesterday and decided to take several photos of the sun on my ipad just to see if I could the shadow of venus on them. I could not of course, but what I did see was even more amazing. I took maybe 30 shots 20 within a minute or two then after looking through the telescope set up I stood by my car and shot maybe 10 more. The first 20 I do get a distant gray round object that looks like possible a planet. The second 10 I took just before leaving do not show this but one photo has what looks to be a large triangular object to the right of the sun. I took these last 10 photos with in a 30 second or so time frame just tapping the camera button. This object is not in the photo before or after. I am not a big believer in UFO's and am more interested in the science aspect. These may be a huge asteroid but the shape is unusual and it is clearly visible. These were taken with my ipad so no fancy camera. I came across this page looking to see if anyone had seen something similar. Please let me know if you have I am clueless as to what to do with my photos.
