This is a post which might ultimately belong in the Astronomy thread. I hope so.
I post here because of the innumerable odd videos posted on youtube showing really puzzling objects showing up on NASA solar mission satellite imagery. These are largely anomalies to which NASA seldom if ever responds. That is the unfortunate context in which this new video arises.
So now we have an event which elicits a response from NASA with the explanation of "coronal cavity". Never heard of it before, but it makes some sense and it should be credible if it comes from NASA. Skeptics will want to take a close look.
An amateur sees a movie from SDO and says it may be the sun "releasing a new planet" (!)
A related video.
NASA replies with an explanation of coronal cavity, a pretty new term to most of us, I would think.
For a possibly similar event:
Click the date box and then todays date - 14th of March, 2012
then click AIA 094 green
then click movie
then click resolution 1024
then click submit (let it load - a few seconds), watch at about 2 o'clock position - which is sunspot 1429.

Readers of the skepticism and debunking forum will be familiar with Leslie Kean, and with our massive PF thread (now closed) devoted to her book: http://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=426996
I pass along a couple of her recent articles regarding the highly amusing El Bosque UFO incident:
Here we have a UAP on video (actually 7 videos) running high speed rings around several flights of Chilean air force jets at an airshow.
Here is more reporting on the investigation by the astronomers, air force specialists and such.
Within the reporting is found this provocative statement:
Astronomer Luis Barrera from the Metropolitan University of Sciences in Chile, who has an asteroid named after him, was one of eight highly skeptical scientists who analyzed the footage. He was able to rule out a meteoroid, pieces of meteors or comets, space junk, a bird or an airplane.
"The object performed a risky flight maneuver in front of the Halcones from W-E-W, at low altitude and high speed," Barrera concluded. "It had intentional movements. It moved east with 25 degrees inclination, which is the same angle of spacecraft when entering the atmosphere."
Forum members are invited to review the material, but to please refrain from any reply which is not in conformity to recently revised forum rules. http://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=593815
I would greatly prefer not to have my thread on unusual atmospheric phenomena and electrical eccentricities locked. Even so, any tactful and rational remarks would be appreciated.
