What you are seeing here is a "SOLID OBJECT."
It's not compression
artifacts, pixels or dust, who says so? NASA...!, on their official web
Read on below...
Below is the official NASA website Astronomy
Picture of the Day, on
the picture below you can see spheres passing by the Sun, the sphere
is Mercury and it has an uncanny resemblance to the spheres Mr. Joseph Gurman of NASA dismissed as "Compression artifacts, highly
It would suggest all the photo's below are images of
solid objects, and not Compression artifacts, pixels or dust!
Astronomy Picture of the Day
Discover the cosmos! Each day a different image or photograph of our
fascinating universe is featured,
along with a brief explanation
written by a professional astronomer.

Can you spot the planet? The diminutive disk of
Mercury, the solar system's innermost planet, spent about five hours
crossing in front of the enormous solar disk on 2003 May 7, as
viewed from the general vicinity of planet Earth.
The Sun was above
the horizon during the entire transit for observers in Europe,
Africa, Asia, or Australia, and the horizon was certainly no problem
for the Sun-staring SOHO spacecraft.
Seen as a dark spot, Mercury
progresses from left to right (top panel to bottom) in these four
images from SOHO's extreme ultraviolet camera. The panels'
false-colors correspond to different wavelengths in the extreme
ultraviolet which highlight regions above the Sun's visible surface.
This was the first of 14 transits of Mercury which will occur during
the 21st century, but the next similar event will be a much more
rare transit of Venus this coming Tuesday.
Compression artifacts, dust or pixels do not
fly around the Sun

Look at the image below. When I first saw this wonderful image I
thought, "I recognize this formation"...
I did, watch the video below... It's the same formation!

Here is a recent image - they are still coming in!
I have written to a Mr. Joseph Gurman at NASA asking for an
explanation to all this, you can read his reply below, he states
these anomalies are, quote "Compression artifacts, highly
That sounds very plausible especially coming from a NASA
scientists, one big problem with Mr. Gurman's explanation though, if
these spheres are compression artifacts, why then did they only
start appearing on the 17th of January this year, they would have
been there since the first day SOHO began sending photo's back to
Here is the e-mail
Hi, Mr. Walton,
Compression artifacts, highly magnified. The images you are looking
at are "space weather beacon mode" images that are telemetered down
...in near-realtime, and are both binned (undersampled spatially) and
heavily, lossily compressed digitally onboard (analogous to the
various JPEG compression setting son a digital camera, but much more
Usually, by now (that is, three days or more after the data
were obtained), we'd have the full-resolution (2048 x 2048) images,
which are much less heavily, but still lossily, compressed, and are
played back to a Deep Space Network (DSN) ground station via the
high-gain antenna on one of the STEREO spacecraft.
piece of ground hardware at DSN failed, and we're only slowly
catching up on data from January 18 onward --- except the
lower-resolution (256 x 256 or 512 x 512) beacon mode data.
The compression artifacts are particularly obvious when a particle
(cosmic ray or solar energetic, charged particle) hits the CCD
detector on the spacecraft. The compression scheme has a hard time
mathematically representing sharp, single or few-pixel features, and
you get a characteristic pattern of a bright dot in the middle of a
compression block (a subsection of the image) surrounded by a
pattern of dark dots.

With all respect, Compression artifacts, highly magnified,
pixels or dust do not fly around the Sun!
In response to Mr. Gurman of NASA an expert from Godlike Production
lends his expertise to the argument.
Because camera sensors used color-striped sensors, hot pixels are
usually colored red or green or blue.
"They are not spots. They are not evenly distributed. They do not
look like noise."
It's interesting to note, The Russians claim their telescope TESIS
stopped working on the 18th of January due to a faulty battery, just
as NASA claimed SOHO malfunctioned on the same day, Both one day
after these spheres showed up!
OK, this (below) is the latest image posted by

U.S. scientist says scores of UFOs fly around the Sun
“The statements about UFO’s causing solar flares are absolutely
groundless,” says Sergei Yazev, chief researcher at the Institute of
Solar and Terrestrial Physics under the Russian Academy of Sciences.
“We might as well assume that an increase in the flux of high-energy
particles before a flare will cause that interference looking like
UFOs on those pictures.
Due to design characteristics of the SOHO
photographic equipment, the telescope will always produce a picture
of some winged object in case of a photo session involving some
bright spot, be it a comet of a planet.
The 'wings' will be
horizontal in any case. Should SOHO photographs a spacecraft, a
picture will have the image of 'wings' always pointing at different
angles,” adds Yazev.
