On Sunday July 23, 2017 a spectacular CME emerged from the farside of the sun. Coronagraphs onboard the orbiting Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) tracked the fast-moving cloud as it billowed into space.
NASA’s STEREO-A spacecraft, which has a partial view of the sun’s farside, identified the source of the blast as active sunspot AR2665.
Sunspot AR2665 will be back on the Earth side of the sun a little more than a week from now. If the sunspot remains active, it could bring a new round of geomagnetic storms and auroras to our planet in early August, reports Spaceweather.
The source of the enormous explosion on the farside of the sun is not active sunspot AR2665 but a strange black rectangular anomaly inside the fast-moving cloud.
Now, if you look at the moment the explosion occurs and you follow the fast-moving cloud as it billowed into space then you see something strange inside the cloud that looks like a rectangular black box connected to a string of light (see image 1) above the anomaly. Next, it seems as the string of light anomaly (see image 2) changes into a solid structure as it emerges from the black anomaly before disappearing into space.
From 3.30 minutes to 3.40 minutes in the below video you can see the massive explosion and the alleged anomalies.
Without a doubt, the source is sunspot AR2665 and the strange anomalies are not what it seems to be. They are just the effect of the fast-moving cloud. But how is it possible that such a cloud can produce nearly 100% rectangular shapes?
Coincidentally, Sunday’s farside explosion occurred on the 5th anniversary of another significant farside event: The Solar Superstorm of July 23, 2012. That superstorm, which has been compared to the historic Carrington Event of 1859, could have caused widespread power blackouts if it had not missed our planet.
