The first thing I noticed is the size of the object in question. If it was a spacecraft it would be half as big as Jupiter! Check out the pic in the link for comparison. Obviously the object could be much closer that the sun , but wouldnt that create an out of focus object?

If that is a real object then how do you explain the way it's lit? From the position of the satellite to the object, the reflection of light SHOULD be facing low and left (assuming it's behind the sun). If it's in front of the sun you should not see any reflections at all. Either way, you will not get a reflection facing up and right as is shown in the Vid. My best guess is that this is a hoax using photoshop.

If you've ever spent lots of time with photoshop, things like that start to stand out as being obvious manipulation. Look closely at the reflections on the object and you will see a gradient pixelation (like looking down on a pyramid). Add gaussian blur and you have UFO's!!!!

I wouldn't say "I failed to see your reply". My point is that if you boost the contrast on any picture you can make all sorts of anomalies. Is boosting the contrast a scientific method to find aliens?

Actually, it is in the photograph in your link, but not in the same location. The object is further down the right side of the Sun and closer to the edge of the sun. Either the pictures are from different times, or that part of the image was moved. Either way, to me it looks like a background star caught in the image.

Considering the size of the object compared to the sun, this "ufo" must be the size of a small planet.
That craft must be the mother of all motherships!

I'm sorry, I just think you see something you just wanna see in this picture.
There are strangly shaped things all around us in nature. Just have a look at the clouds any given day and I'm sure you would see one of them in the shape of a flying saucer or whatever else your mind wants it to be.

I'm not calling it a hoax, I just think you put too much into what is really nothing special at all here.

"finned black wings...openings on the back...strange feeling told me a UFO was here"

Apologies, but if this was just an "artefact", you will look more than just a total nut.

Obviously a Chinese lantern, powered by swamp gas after having been dropped from an Air National Guard F-16 during a Golden Knights night time training jump.

But seriously, a nice find OP. S & F for you!

That's an easy one "pilgrim". Why meta-phasic shielding of course


On a more serious note, some of these sun photo's are indeed showing symmetry, including rounded surfaces that catch light. Anomalies have far more random and natural shapes. Seems very suspect.

That's not the original. They are different dates.

yours is : 2011 - 01 - 25 : 19:46:09
vidoe is : 2011 - 01 - 22 : 10:46:10

I don't know how to actually get the different dated images... ?!

Bingo! Even after photofixing the area, there is nothing there in the original. and you are right, the video has a lot of detail removed. Odd that while detail is removed, this object has such definition.

He does go into detail regarding what he did at the link. Unfortunately, I do not have the programs that he named but I do have photoshop.


Well this would be a good indicator and important to the subject at hand. Just saying.
Like I said, gimme any picture and with the use of only filters I can make something appear that is not in the original. What does this prove?


The real problem with this is that for any filter to show something it has to work with something already there. There is nothing in the area in that image.

I get the idea beepee is just an attention seeker.

It's a standard satellite.

The Youtube OP claims in other videos that NASA has removed edited images that he has previously copied.

Yes, the guy's youtube channel CLEARLY exposes him as a total hoaxer and deluded nutjob. Plain and simple. Folks like him give us a bad name, unfortunately there are so many of us that are all to happy to let him give us a bad name by seriously giving him the amount of attention he needs to keep up his delusions and ignorance.

Thus the cycle repeats itself forever.

I have spent some time to go over some of these images, and there is a similar shaped object in all of these images

i have no clue as to what it is but clearly its moving around.

...and please dont be screamin hoax at me, the images are still held at nasa.....

any ideas as to what it may be? correct me if im wrong but i think a satellite is out of the question due to the extreme heat ?


















this one is great.. i see 3 similarities

These are great - thank you! At least it doesn't appear to be a photoshop hoax as you have achieved similar findings. Now I think a good question is, are these something new? If so, that would support the notion that they are not simply camera artifacts.

This is not a website I would normally cite, but Joe Gurman, STEREO Project Scientist, was asked about the spheres and his answer is here:
www.colinandrews.net...

The compression artifacts are particularly obvious when a particle (cosmic ray or
solar energetic, charged particle) hits the CCD detector on the spacecraft
head-on. (Grazing hits show up as bright streaks.) The compression scheme has
a hard time mathematically representing sharp, single- or few-pixel features, and
you get a characteristic pattern of a bright dot in the middle of a compression
block (a subsection of the image) surrounded by a pattern of dark dots.
