SOHO C3 data anomaly with 2 triangular craft and connecting energy beam

Anomaly in SOHO C3 data @ 2016/07/16 00:18.

What is that top left of center when looking at NASA SOHO data at

Why is it interesting? Well here are some zooms I created from the SOHO C3 2016/07/16 00:06, 00:18 and 00:30 datasets.

1. First area of interest is our location 12 seconds before the anomaly appears so we are using data from SOHO C3 @ 2016/07/16 00:06.

Zooming in on the area circled and you can see a faint triangular shape. The full original NASA image is available at Zoom into the 11 o'clock segment.

2. Wow! C3 data from the same spot 12 seconds later @ 00:18 with something definite and new, image available at

3. Enhancement the second area of interest. Overlay of

on which enhances the smaller object on left 4-6. I've included copies of the original SOHO photos.

7. A closer zoom of the 1.

8. Beam (or whatever) endpoint.

9-10. Some close ups of the area of interest.

Details on the SOHO project available here This SOHO C3 anomaly analysis spans a duration between 00:06 and 00:30 hours on the 7th of July 2016. There are anomalies in SOHO C3 data from time to time though I've never seen anything this 'defined'.
