NOTES REALTIME AS NEAR-SOLAR EVENTS HAPPENED MAY 29-30, 2000
Starting watch: 4/29/00 2:48 AM Pacific Daylight Time

ALERT: Solar Torpedo Ongoing event

Watching something BIG going into or towards sun at position 7:00 o'clock, inner corona. Yet to impact or flyby.

Not sure what I am seeing yet. Need other eyes! Please forward.

Could be a moon of Jupiter, a comet, but it looks anomalous and spooky, like the projectiles in 1998. Appears to have a tail and is planetary-planetoid in size.

Also on the frame LASCO C2 4/30/00 01:31 we saw what looked to be a failed torpedo:

NOTE: Jupiter is also looming on LASCO C3, an unusual event because of Jupiter's wide orbit and the first planet to arrive in SOHO field of view towards the forthcoming May planetary alignment

NASA PULLS THE FEED IMMEDIATELY BEFORE AND AFTER EVENT:

IMPACT, SPLASH OR FLYBY?
EDITOR: apparent impact splash in 98 took about 12 hrs. after line of sight impact:
Check cross-reference to former event June 3, 1998
members.aol.com/phikent/orbit/projectile.html

Current "torpedo" event may not be on the surface yet, and then may not be visible splash for several hours--vast distances out there for event to become visible. On the other hand we might have a flyby or even a CAPTURE by the sun. New planet?

NOTE: We are hampered by missing data both before and after the appearance of the "torpedo."
BEFORE:
NASA Missing C3 Files: 20000428_2142; MISSING FILES; 20000429_0418 AFTER:
20000430_0654; MISSING FILES; 20000430_1054

IMPORTANT: vast distances out there: "torpedo" disappears on visual, then several hours lapse before impact, then several hours lapse before visual solar splash if any.

Have already located signs of disturbance.

ALSO not sure what the solar processes are when sun gets bonked. Does the intruder get swallowed into the mantle, into the core, then the mighty furnace spews later in a type of solar revenge?

KEEP WATCH! This current alignment will bring more wonders.
