    I did not see the image, but it sounds like a proton event hit...
     Sometimes during a solar proton event I've seen SOHO satelliet saturated
    like going through a snowstorm and then looking at the GOES
    weather satellites I've noticed "speckles" that were caused by the
    protons hitting the satellite. Compare the 2 images sometime and say,
    "Whew! thanks for Earth's magnetic field lines to stop these hard
    events from reaching us."
