Very Long ferret! 10-21-2018

Post by TheSkyBurner » Mon Oct 22, 2018 12:30 am

If you cant see this ferret line, then I cant convince you its there.

This thing's magnetic conformity is incredibly long, and I have the data showing it disappear within a matter of minutes.

It also has several roots clearly branching off .

These things disappear so fast, I now understand why nobody else has imaged them.

Solar minimum has something new to offer!

Feel free to share this animation across social media, ferret's are real and deserve great attention!

That's pretty cool, I wonder what they look like when on the limb?

Very best,

here are the offshoot "roots"

Its like, human veins almost. It has to be transporting some material or energy somewhere. It would not trace a path like this if it was not moving something along these line. Path of least resistance...

Hello Apollo
Could you give data / hour of observation ?
Best regards

They disappear in 30 seconds, up to 3 minutes max with the filter I am using.

There is one stretching across the entire sun right now visible on SDO AIA1600. I don't understand how nobody has ever made mention of this phenomena, maybe it is just more visible in solar minimum because there are no active regions to obstruct them.

This is excellent work Apollo :hamster: :bow
I have seen them many times in Eric's CaK full discs and thought it was just my imagination seeing lines :)

Me too. I’ve seen linear features in my CaK images and others, but put them down to random effects. Imagine a floor randomly filled with ball bearings, there will be well ordered domains and less ordered domains, with random threads of apparently connected bearings here and there. Is this not what we’re seeing in CaK full discs? The finer lines in the magnified views are, however, more convincing.

Time to time I see a very similar "filaments" with my CaK filter. When I set a very high contrast on the screen and "walk" over the sun disk I see such "filaments" which then disapper shortly.

My explanation: our "eye - brain" machine find out such "coincidencies" in images. Just like "canals" on Mars. As the granulation network changes, earlier visible "filaments" disappear.

ordinarily i would agree with the "coincidences" phenomena, but every second of this was also captured by gong in h-alpha too, this establishes a link to ferrets as a type of magnetic anomaly and not a "filament" ( i was not using hydrogen alpha filter)......
