Threads which devolve so quickly from any actual discussion of ideas & existing evidence of the matter (of immense importance) suggested by the evidence of the OP, just serve to demonstrate how this site is utterly under the control of those who wish to crush access to any measure of real truth associated with topics & ideas which can only be truly found by a discussion of esoterica, of all kinds.
Nobody makes a serious or intelligent comment, nobody thinks to upload a series of images related to the idea in the OP, everyone just claims hoax or says "I dunno, but ooh, how strange/ spooky". Well done, trolls & timewasters who festeringly inhabit ATS, you've made plain the problem of total information domainance, in a closed system such as this (which may or may not actually belong to you in the first place).

How many frames was it captured in, what was the original frame rate? From that, if there is an actual change in position over each frame, you can determine the speed, if it is a real object. If it appears as a static artifact over all frames, it's probably just that, an artifact.

Just because its a conspiracy site doesnt negate the need to use ones brain and common sense
The motto here is "Deny Ignoramce"
Some seem to think it is "Promote Ignorance'!
Telescope images captured of the sun on Monday (March 12) show what appears to be a planet-size shadowy object tethered to the sun by a dark filament. In the image sequence, a burst of brightly lit material can be seen erupting from the sun's surface surrounding the dark object, after which the orb detaches from the sun and shoots out into space.
C. Alex Young, a solar astrophysicist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center who runs a website called The Sun Today, explained that the prominence is situated below a tunnel-shape feature called a filament channel. "When you look at it from the edge of the sun, what you actually see is a spherical object. You're actually looking down the tunnel. And this tunnel sits up top of the filament,"
Less exciting than a refueling UFO or a brand new planet, maybe — but there's nothing quite like the truth.
What this is though is just something that's unfamiliar to most people, but something that solar scientists have been aware of for some time, a transitory cavity in the solar plasma field, known as a coronal prominence cavity, or polar crown cavity. Often associated with Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs). This does appear to be a quite interesting one, with attached vortex. But that's all it is. Not a giant space ship sucking fuel from the sun.
SDO shows colder material as dark and hotter material as light, so the line is, in fact, an enormous swatch of colder material hovering in the sun's atmosphere, the corona. Stretched out, that line – or solar filament as scientists call it – would be more than 533,000 miles long. That is longer than 67 Earths lined up in a row. Filaments can float sedately for days before disappearing. Sometimes they also erupt out into space, releasing solar material in a shower that either rains back down or escapes out into space, becoming a moving cloud known as a coronal mass ejection, or CME.
According to Nathan Rich, lead ground systems engineer in the NRL's solar physics branch, the "spaceship" is merely a collection of streaks left by cosmic rays, charged particles from space, which whizzed through the camera's sensor, or CCD, as the image was taken. [See footage]
As a cosmic ray passes through a camera's image sensor, it deposits a large amount of its electric charge in the pixels that it penetrates. If the particle passes through at a shallow angle to the plane of the camera, it affects several pixels along its path. The result is a bright streak on the image.
