At first I just thought it was the result of the refraction lines surrounding the occulting disk, but the split starts before Venus reaches them (they circle the disk on the images, close aboard).
I am about to transmit at C1 image to you. I have no idea what seems to be shooting away from the sun. I will add the same time period C2 for comparison.
Look at these EIT frames in order. I was thinking that maybe I could pick up venus entering the eit frames. Then at 212ut and 236ut, the eit is pointed out into dead space...returns at 248?
Was there something we were no supposed to see?
Will keep looking.
