    wtf is up with the latest images? It looks as though sol is traveling through a dust shitstorm. Is this related to the ‘mechanical failure’??

    The mechanical failure was a problem with the computer we use – on the ground – to convert the science data to images that are used by Helioviewer. The instrument LASCO was completely unaffected by this.

    All those white specks and lines showing up in LASCO C2 and C3 images (for example, http://bit.ly/xylCHQ) are due to particles accelerated by the event on the Sun on 2012/01/23 around 0400 UT. The particles are actually hitting the LASCO C2 and C3 detectors and are being counted.

    The LASCO seems to be botched up again. The recent big flare was missed where the LASCO images are concerned.

    I have no picture on my helioviewer, the screen is just black. I have checked everything (date, time etc) to no avail. Any idea what the problem is?

    actually are technical problems?! or is it more a way of hiding the events Forthcoming! when you try to hide it!?

      Unfortunately, we do encounter problems from time to time in delivering the latest images via Helioviewer. We do our best to solve them as quickly as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by interruptions to our service.
