Pulsing dark glare in LASCO C2 and C3 data


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I noticed something I never seen before and it is a pulsing "glare" right after the missing data, after the far-side flare on 10th of June 2021.

It starts at 02:00 12/6  and stops at 15:24 14/6.

9 pulses at regular intervals. Any clues, explanation for this?

Thanks for the answer. I am well aware of the fact. Been following the sun for a whole cycle now. Still my mind wonder what would cause such an artifact. Well well. Thanks again.

I see what the OP is referring to in a movie created from C2 imagery for that date range.   It does look like an adaptive radial brightness/dimming algorithm going nuts.  As an aside, there are several meteoroids/comets in quadrant IV visible in both C2 and C3 for that date range.
