C2.0 Solar Flare August 15 2020 06:47 UTC

I downloaded the SDO movies from https://sdo.gsfc.nasa.gov/data for AIA 171 and AIA 193 spanning the time when this flare occurred.  Unfortunately, the images for the duration of the flare are conspicuously missing.  Are there alternative sources for the image sequences from August 15, 2020 06:47-07:47 UTC?

Okay that's a good answer.  But I don't think we're quite into the SDO eclipse season yet.  According to FAQ #4 the eclipses happen in the three weeks nearest the equinoxes.  August 15th is 5 weeks and 3 days away from the September 22nd equinox.

There was some eclipsing happening about a week or two ago when you made this.
