Just looking at the stupid thing should be enough for anyone to realize that it isn't a physical object. The only reason to remove it from an image is to make the rest of the image more pleasant to look at.
I can't believe we are even discussing this particular picture considering how obvious it is that there is nothing actually physically there. Next we'll be discussing the demon possessed because of the red eye effects that sometimes come out in photographs. It's just silly.
Don't you have better and more compelling UFO related subjects to focus on by now McG?
Looking at that picture, if that was genuine, and such a large thing was in space so close to the earth, we would see it with out visual aid. No way NASA would be hiding that without a lot of people and a lot of blindfolds.
Either the perspective is an illusion and it is a small thing, or it's a processing artifact. But it does not even have a definite shape. I do not see how it possibly can be a solid object of substantial size. That just does not make sense.
