    No Patrick, since SOHO is 1.2million Km sunward of Earth, it cant see
    too many Eart orbiting satellites. What you remark on is either a 
    comet ( SOHO detects small members of the Kruetz sungrazers at several
    a month), or a cosmic ray effect on the detector. One can also see
    the planets at times of solar conjunction.
