The UFO Phenomenon

NASA satellite photographs mystery object

UFO spotters have found something unusual on a picture taken by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory.
Opinions are divided on whether the anomaly is an actual object in space or something on or close to the camera. If it was a real object to the scale depicted then it would have to be enormous, even larger than the Earth.

"An enlargement of the object makes the enormously large UFO look like a ship straight out of a Hollywood movie," wrote one enthusiast. News site Gather summarised the phenomenon by writing "the unidentified flying object, which bears no resemblance to anything ever spotted near the Sun, somehow manages to withstand the blazing heat thrown off by solar flare activity and the incredibly high temperatures emanating from nuclear fusion generated on the surface of the star."
A strange object flying close to the sun looks unnervingly like a huge, metallic 'mothership' familiar from Hollywood blockbusters. The picture was released by Nasa's sun-watching Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, known as SOHO - and has become an immediate cult hit on the internet.

I personally find it hard to believe that an object that large could move so close to the sun without being seen by someone on Earth. Exactly. The sheer size of this thing, coupled with the reflection it would make, would give us a "Tattooine" double sun effect.

so.... if you are covered in honey, you can't be beamed up? does honey make all of the atoms stick together? what if... you get beamed up anyway because you are not aware of 'their' updated technology and then you end up sort of you but with honey in places where it shouldn't be once reassembled!? It's all a bit of a sticky situation, eh? Well the real trick 70f7 is that the honey makes one taste a lot better after re-assembly !And they might just ask for the recipe ? But for sure it slows down the long skid marks on the transporter floor when you land ! Now to the hard to get parts ? Hum well... [More]

funny thing is one of my Clones was flying that ship to the sun, I talked to the Aliens and they let me do whatever I want, oh yeah I have about 1000-2000 clones but they killed all but a few of me, Greys are real, reptillians are real and many many other aliens, I can still feel my clones pain when I went to close to the sun... but I cannot die I just regenerate new tissue... yeah I am crazy! atleast I hope!! any questions about aliens just ask!

Watch the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7PWHAvD1xo Probably NOT a UFO. Look at all the other objects appearing/disappearing every frame. It only there for 1 frame as well. It's likely an artifact in the camera.

When someone claims something is or isn't real they need absolute proof to back up such a large claim. You can't prove that something isn't real - but you do have to prove that something is real for it to be real.

if you look at the picture as just a glance you might think someone sneezed on it lol. I find that this could possibly be air refraction. My guess is there was curtain dust and particles in that area that reflected the suns light giving it a white glow.
