SOHO Flare
on Sep 17, 2003

An unexplained flare on the C2 images close to the Sun reveal something between the Earth orbiting SOHO satellite and the Sun that would cause this flare. Looking closely at the C2 images before this image there are objects in that vicinity, and they appear on the wider view C3 images later as well. Planet X is on the Ecliptic, thus behind the disc on the SOHO most of the time, but the moon swirls and debris in the tail have a large field.
