Global Oscillations of the Sun according to SOHO/LASCO C3 Coronagraph Data
Long-period oscillations in the brightness of the Sun as a star have been analyzed on the basis of measurements of the solar light reflected by planets when they come into the field of view of the Large Angle and Spectrometric Coronagraph (LASCO C3) onboard the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO). We took sequences of FITS intensitygrams from the archive of the SOHO/LASCO C3 space observatory for the observational data; they were 1024 × 1024 pixels in size, and they were acquired with the 12-min interval. In 5-day continuous time series of the brightness of Mars and Jupiter, coinciding modes of 8–10 and 36–38 h were found. This coincidence apparently indicates their solar origin. In addition, for Mars, we obtained 25-day series of time variations of the reflected solar radiation, in which a mode with even a lower frequency of 8–10 days was detected.
