• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Man On the Sun


Sep 18, 2018
Oklahoma City,OK
I was digging through SDO's webpage history of solar images of the sun. Dated September 9, 2012 is a image (193 angstroms) of the sun with a man's face with long hair. The period SDO took the image was during the rise of Cycle 24. Zoom in enough it becomes noticeable. doesn't need alot of zoom. The image is just above the equatorial zone towards the east limb right next to a large bright active region.
