That was the moon! It caused a solar eclipse for SDO today! An unusual but very cool event! You can even see the bumpy edge of the mountains on the moon.

Does that possibly mean anything flaring (at that time of eclipse) behind the moon on the sun might get missed on sdo? Do eclipses impact our ability to see for a moment?

Yes, if there was a flare in the portion of the sun that was eclipsed while it was eclipsed it could be missed. But eclipses are so rare and only last for a short period, so it’s not really a problem.
