It is the result of a process called background subtraction.

You do know that the majority of our planets have an invisible protective layer, right? Once the sun's rays hit a planet, the invisible layer can be seen by the average onlooker.

Nice try, Phage! We got pics of your mothership!
During its second flyby of the planet on October 6, 2008, MESSENGER discovered that Mercury’s magnetic field can be extremely leaky indeed. The spacecraft encountered magnetic “tornadoes” – twisted bundles of magnetic fields connecting the planetary magnetic field to interplanetary space – that were up to 500 miles wide or a third of the radius of the planet.
“These ‘tornadoes’ form when magnetic fields carried by the solar wind connect to Mercury’s magnetic field,” said Slavin. “As the solar wind blows past Mercury’s field, these joined magnetic fields are carried with it and twist up into vortex-like structures. These twisted magnetic flux tubes, technically known as flux transfer events, form open windows in the planet’s magnetic shield through which the solar wind may enter and directly impact Mercury’s surface.”
The tornadoes, also called "flux transfer events" (twisted lines) form at the magnetopause and "plasmoids" (yellow areas) when they form in the long magnetic "tail" extending from the night-side of Mercury.

Really good video showing some kind of unknown object decloaking next to Mercury, perhaps the cloaking device is sensitve to sun flares like earth satelites and electronic is. what do you think ?
Huge cloaked UFO next to Mercury on SECCHI HI1-A on 12/01/11, appears when a CME hits it! Go to SECCHI and record this before it disappears.
Go to 0:30 to skip to the action
Mercury has an equatorial diameter of 4,879 km, so if this object is next to mercury its massive
around 2500 km in diameter.edit on 3-12-2011 by Vandalour because: (no reason given)
