Pretty cool video.
I wonder what the object was tho.
Star & Flag.

Okay so at first I saw the helicopter in the vid and thought this was a prank - LOL.

The "object", when skipping off the sun seems to gain quite a bit of length horizontally. Could it be this is just a product of the camera lens and the light from the sun?

Its an advanced interstellar science drone from another civilization taking samples. Or maybe a comet... the change in velocity (skipping) could be due to some sort of reaction the comet had with the sun (explosion) I personally think its just some aliens taking samples of our sun for study or resources.

I will grant that you can use the sun's gravity as a slingshot.... but a SUN SPOT?



This is a camera on Earth... Sky Fox news taking a shot of the sunset... not in space... not SOHO

You can see the clouds move by... unless you want to tell me there are clouds in space? Clouds on the Moon maybe but not in space

isn't it kinda impossible for something to bounce off the Sun ?

i am sure that whatever did come that close would be vaporized.

i think it's something shooting by in our atmosphere and has distorted the picture making it appear as if it hit the Sun.


How do you explain the change in direction once it seems to hit the sun?????
you can't just ignore that fact.

Yep, fast is right...

I am not sure if it is any closer than the sun in that view though.. It sure does seem to change trajectory off of the top of the sun.

By the way.. do we have a date on when this was shot, or did I just miss it?



I noticed that too.

Think about this.....If that object came at earth it would be way bigger than our planet and judging from the speed at which it crossed the Sun we would have been hit by it before we actually knew what was coming.

Like faster than a blink of an eye fast

it's probably a bird close to the camera

if you want to believe that a regular Camera on Earth can see something hitting the sun then go ahead...believe it...

Possible the video is not real time but speeded up I suppose. Just doesn't look much like a prominence I've ever seen.


Agree with Phage 100% here!

This highly unlikely to be an object close to the sun. If it had actually skimmed off the sun, you expect to see a reaction from the sun too.

I'm going with either bird like object in the atmosphere or fake!

to my untrained eye, it looks like an optical illusion more than anything. not sure which effect i'm thinking of, gravity lensing .. no that's not right.. something about when a small object passes by a larger object, it distorts it. its like some wierd parallax view deal.

There are tons of examples of that over at the SOHO site.


Cheers!!!!


This man just explained what this was, and yet we go on and on, and on, and on...

Correct,. what is seen is something entering earths atmosphere at the exact position so it looks like it bounces of the sun. Watch it just apears when getting close to sun then illuminates and vanishes . Clearly a ufo for now but it did not bounce of the sun. The camera recording is from the inside our atmosphere, before jumping to conclusions lets try just try to think of the million other possible things it could be.

It looks to me like a small meteor that happened to cross in front of the sun's disk. The distortion seen is simply some heated air behind it in its trajectory refracting the light. I see no bouncing; the object appears to follow a straight path but curves a bit in-frame as the camera's moves a bit.

I wondered the same thing myself. For a solar flare to be pushed out and pulled back in would create an arc shape, like so many solar flares that we've seen picture of. I would opt for video artifact/light refraction caused by the atmosphere.


Agreed, due to the gravity, if it was an object that could be affected by gravity, it would arc.

It's possible that the video caught sight of a huge light ship that was skipping onto the sun and off again. Maybe they had to stop and pick up a package on their way to Orion?
If you believe the thing about the Sun being a gateway, that's totally possible.

"How do you explain the change in direction once it seems to hit the sun?????

Like I said, think in terms of huge interdimensional ships. They can do some crazy #.

A flare would curve with the sun. This thing skipped off, like a rock on water.

Yeah, if people one here had brains they'd be dangerous, but thanks to depthoffield for putting up some pictures so that those that need pictures can finally say.... "Oh yeah"

ATS is cool! Nice video. Thanks. It doesn't look like a flare to me but I'm no scientist. But why didn't the object burn up? I was under the impression that the Sun is hot as hell and that if anything gets too close it would burn up. Well maybe our scientist are not correct about a lot things.

Whatever it is, it's massive.

It doesn't appear to be a flare, caught in a magnetic ribbon current as it's approach angle is too sharp, as is it's exit angle for that matter.

It seems to approach, at tremendous speed decelarates as it contacts the sun, and then appears to be repelled away, again at a fantastic rate of speed.

It doesn't look like a flare, because of it's apparent physics.

It can't be a comet, asteroid etc..it would not have escaped Sol's gravity, hence would have accelerated right into the sun, not slowed down the closer it got. It's certainly would NOT have skimmed the surface, and bounced off.

It could be a craft of some kind. My first guess, looking at the video, is some king of artificial craft that is either; a) making a fuel stop. b) using the sun's gravity to slingshot itself on it's journey. c) EBE's playing star chicken?

It could be a mechanical abboration of some kind. I doubt this, as the Fox presenter and cameraman, each both sound surprised and somewhat fortunate to have captured this on tape, they work with this equipment daily, so would easily have recognised an equipment malfunction. They did not.

So for me, it's a craft performing an 'in fight refueling', or gravity assist manoever.

spikey.

Impressed though I was with the video, I must sadly say that this is indisputably a hoax, or a mistake.
Someone earlier noted the incredulous speed of the object; after a moment of multiplication, I concluded that this object would have to be planet-sized and moving faster than light. Even if you choose to believe this is the case, understand one thing. Our vision and photo-technology is completely based on light in various frequencies; anything moving faster than the speed of light would not register to our eyes or cameras. Not to mention that such speeds are highly improbable, even for an advanced race...or that planet-ships are nothing more than bad sci-fi...

Its still a good video, though. I'll file it right next to the telekinetic five-year old and the bigfoot film.

Awesome, thanks for the explanation.
Pretty f'n cool though.
I will be sure to check out SOHO site.
