Click here http://rammb.cira.colostate.edu/visit/AniS/02261998/Vis_Loop1.html to go to a loop of a group of images from one of our GOES satellites (full disk). The loop is composed of an “enhanced” set of visible images so that dark (near black) stands out as speckled red/blue. As you animate the loop, notice the two fast moving “patches” moving opposite each other. The light patch is moving westward, while the “dark” patch is moving to the east. What are they? UFOs? Image corruption? Data error? Natural phenomenon? Un-natural phenomenon? What?
See the comment’s section for the answer. For an additional interesting take on, and use of, solar eclipes, please see the following paper by Dr. Steve Miller by clicking here .
