NASA has debunked the idea that a triangular shape on a STEREO-B spacecraft image is an alien ship.
The image shows the inner solar system as seen by one of two probes parked on either side of the Sun. "Comparing it for size to the planetary objects that are seen in this telescope, if my calculations are correct, that thing is enormous," said one Youtube user who like several others believes that the object is something otherwordly. "At the same time as this strange-looking feature starts being visible, the very bright planet Venus enters the [telescopic camera's] field-of-view from the lower left," said a NASA scientist. "The strange-looking geometrical 'object' is actually an internal reflection of the planet Venus within the telescope optics. This effect has been seen many times before."
"Once again, alien conspiracy theorists have attempted to use publicly available NASA images to prove that the space agency must be engaging in an elaborate UFO cover-up."
