Lets break it down like this:
The software detected Mercury yesterday in the same spot as the supposed "UFO". The software is also designed to edit the lights of stars out of the picture which it does by analyzing consecutive day to day images and deleting any spots that appear in the same area of the photographs.
With me so far?
Mercury tends to move a lot slower in the image frames than the stars behind it. So when Mercury was in two different spots in two different days the computer software tried to delete the overlapping parts of Mercury and what was left of the original Mercury image is the "image artifact" mistakenly described as a space ship.
With me so far?
The CME image in which we see the plasma "flowing" is a computerized representation of the data collected by the instruments photographing this event. The computer when animating the flow of the plasma encountered the image artifact and since the software thought the image artifact was a part of Mercury it showed the plasma flowing "around" the image artifact.
With me so far?
The plasma in space did not actually hit an object. The imagery we see is a result of a processing error in the software that renders the images.
No actual ship is present. This is an image artifact. Image artifacts are constantly being called Nibiru/Planet X/Wormwood/Muhammed/Jesus/Aliens/Bette Middler on ATS so it really is no surprise that this particular artifact has been erroneously labeled a spaceship.
Its really very elementary.

However, if you do go read through the thread, don't stop at Phage saying it's due solely to background subtraction (I believe this is on page 3 or 4 of the thread). Apparently he likes to mislead people and use sources that have very little to do with the topic at hand (in this case, a flare—not a dark hole—next to Mercury). He did provide a nice starting point for doing your own research, but failed to provide any useful or valuable research/sources. If you're going to look into this more, don't just Google what you think your answer is (like Phage did).
Head NRL group scientist Russ Howard and lead ground systems engineer Nathan Rich say the mysterious object is in fact Mercury itself. And what we're seeing in the footage is the equivalent of Mercury's wake, "where the planet was on the previous day," as it travels through the solar system on its natural gravitational path:

Thus, for the most recent images, only preliminary backgrounds can be applied. This sometimes causes too much to be subtracted from some regions, making these areas dark.

Its theorized by those two sources. It is NOT explained. That is not what it is either.

Select whatever size image you wish
Date: To see the animation in the "decloak" video use 20111201
Now, change the date to 20111207 (or 06, or 05, or...). It has to do with the time of day. It happens at the same time (more or less) everyday. It disappears in the first image of each day. Notice also that it stays in the same spot in the frame each day (put your cursor on it).
It disappears because a fresh mask is applied at the beginning of each day.
It appears brighter and brighter because the background mask from the day before becomes less and less appropriate as the day goes on.

Someone...please...tell me...why are we so fascinated with 'space' , when Earth is in the shape it's in? With all the problems, we have, right here....don't you think we should be focusing our attention....right here? Who cares about some alien spaceship? What IS the fascination? There are waaaaaaaay too many problems, that we need to deal with....so, can we PLEASE deal with them; then, worry about 'space and aliens'?
I'll believe in 'Aliens'.....when i see one. Til then, they're like Santa Clause, and the Easter Bunny. I can't believe, people actually BELIEVE aliens exist. hahahahahah That's funny. Y'all watch too much X-files. Turn off the t.v. and do something for the 'space' you live around.
