The 5 minute solar oscillation has been exploited in numerous seismic studies in which internal properties of the Sun have been inferred. It is generally regarded that these modes are excited by turbulent convection in the Sun's outermost layers. We observe the oscillatory wakes caused by impulsive events, related to those described in 1909 by Lamb. These correspond to the events modeled by Goode et al. which they associate with excitation of the global 5 minute oscillations.
