From On Dec. 1, a camera onboard NASA’s STEREO spacecraft recorded a wave of electrically charged material shooting out from the sun and blasting Mercury. Footage of this “coronal mass ejection” (CME), as such events are called, has caught the attention of alien-hunters, who say it has unveiled a giant, “cloaked” spaceship parked near the solar system’s innermost planet.

In the footage, one sees a huge spurt of plasma and other solar ejecta washing over Mercury; peculiarly, the material seems to flare up as it hits another nearby object, too. “It’s cylindrical on either side and has a shape in the middle. It definitely looks like a ship to me, and very obviously, it’s cloaked,” YouTube-user siniXster said in his video commentary on the footage, which has quickly spread across the Web.

Alien Terrorists, the borders wide open….whats next?

    December 1st? That means they could be ALREADY HERE! Run! Pretend to be invisible! Swirly thing alert!

  2. Mikey says:

    Romulan Commander when asked if he would be willing to attend the Trump debates replied, “Not only no, but HELL NO, that guy is an ass!….and BTW whats up with that guys head?!?!”

  4. zeph says:

    Yup. That’s the Enterprise, all right. We can only pray that they will have had succeeded in preventing the alteration of the space/time continuum by Aliens Of Ill Will once again.

    Just some way offshore bankers.

    “NASA’s STEREO spacecraft”

    Not quadraphonic, not Dolby 5.1, not 7.1?

    They have been cutting NASA to the bone.

      I giggled

      In case anyone is wondering, STEREO is a pair of spacecraft whose combined data is used to make 3D images of solar activity.

  7. Craig says:

    As Adam C would say, their waiting for the Start-Gate to open!!

  8. Glenn E. says:

    Yeah, right. A blurry blob is “definitely cylindrical. How does he get that from a white hot smear of light? Most likely Mercury has a tiny natural moon, that was too small to be see by telescopes, without a solar flare to light it up. However I’m suspicious of this video, as the space between Mercury and the possible object is devoid of any flare gases. It looks like an photo editing mistake. Rather than it being untouched live footage. I’m surprised this clown didn’t claim he could read marking on the side of the UFO. Yeah, it clearly says, “All Your Base Are Belong To Us”, in large friendly letters.

  9. Glenn E. says:

    Actually, ya know, it does kind of look like the USS Enterprise starship. You can just make out the top two warp nacelles. And the saucer section and secondary hull, just below them. Perhaps the ship traveled back in time somehow. And was abandon there to burn up. Probably not cloaked, as Star Fleet did approve of doing that. And if its shields were still working. We wouldn’t see all that detail as the solar flare passed it. A shielded ship would be a large egg shaped blob, in the hot gases.

    Well I hope the crew got off safe somewhere, somewhen. Maybe they’re here.

  10. Jim says:

    What annoys me about these conspiracy arguments is that they are easily avoided, but scientists along the way do something to make pretty images and doesn’t expect it to blow up.

    Anytime a scientist puts out imagery that has to be manipulated as they did here, the absolute first thing they should ask is “will people misinterpret what we are showing them?”

  11. Cursor_ says:

    It is obvious that it is the Holy Mothership of Dr. Funkenstein launching from the base on Mercury bringing the hottest P-Funk hits from the hottest planet in the solar system.

    They’re coming to burn this mutha down again!

    Peace, love and funk y’all!

    Glenn : We have sent satellites to Mercury. I doubt we missed a moon, even a tiny one. Besides, that image indicated something really big. Even if the cloaking device mad it appear ten times bigger, it would still me massive!

    McCullough : Please don’t suggest a lack of muscle tone or Pedro will pipe in with something homo.

    This appeared as I was sitting listening to a Coast to Coast radio program from a a couple of weeks ago. Richard C Hoagland was telling me how Phobos is a spaceship and there are a couple of comets that are really spaceships and the atmosphere on the moon has increased by 4000% due to airlock leakage from alien bases there. These are all remnants of an alien war from 65 million years ago!

    We are NOT alone…

    Now, if you’ll excuse me, my tinfoil hat is crinkled.

  13. Lynn says:

    Why Romulans? Could be Klingons. Mmm, that dreamy Lt. Worf…

  14. deowll says:

    The “object” would have to be a large fraction of the mass of Mercury. Cloaking device or no the mass of this object that close to Mercury would change the orbit of the planet.

    It is apparent that the “object” lacks a powerful electromagnetic field to shield it from the charged particles. That being the case all the electronics near the surface of this giant “ship” would have been completely fried.

    This is not a healthy location for flesh and blood organisms either.

    How about this being a little art work?

  15. Dave says:

    it looks like a winnebago.

  16. Dallas says:

    Looks a somewhat like Charles Manson or Jesus. Since Charles is in the big house I’m banking on Jesus.

    Let us pray he takes Teabagger Dude to his rightful galaxy.

  17. butterbutt says:

    OK, one of those times the Enterprise tried to get back to the future by slingshotting around the Sun didn’t work…

    No big deal, Spock or Data will figure it out and save the day (and crew).

  18. Skeptic > post # 27,685 ± says:

    More evidence that the universe is warming. Universal Warming? No, that’s not exactly right as some parts are cooling too, and come parts are just unpredictable, so we have called it Universal Radiation Change. It has a nice ambiguous ring to it. I’ve seen the manipulated data and conclusion that God is the cause and there is no debate! (this time we’ve skipped any debate at all). Since He is an anthropomorphic deity, the official name of this alarming development is Anthropomorphic Deity Universal Radiation Change. If we act now, we can stop the sun from burning out. First, I have Radiation Credits for sale…

    Artifact of Mercury’s magnetic field.

  21. AdmFubar says:

    Run???? Run to where?

  22. deegee says:

    If the person in the video and those who believe him knew anything about sci-fi/StarTrek, they would know that a CME would not de-cloak a ship.
    If the person in the video and those who believe him knew anything about reality, they would know that interstellar space-ships and cloaking devices are all fantasy.

  23. Animby says:

    McCullough : I’ve always wondered about the etiology of that phrase especially as I avoid the hors d’ oeuvres and punch bowl…

  24. anonymous says:

    makes me think , as uncle pesto says, its mercury’s magnetic field deflecting the cme Just like earth’s does

  25. DontLetTheTruthSpoilTheParty... says:

    If I recall correctly, it is actually an effect of the telescope trying to average out the lengthy exposure times. What you are seeing is the negative of the previous image, and the bright echo is the dark spot that was Mercury in the pervious image.

    But if you TinFoilHat (do they still make them?) still fits, then “OMG It’s ALIENS!!!”

  26. ObiWan says:

    That’s no moon.

  27. Benrix says:

    I say we build a new space ship to “rendezvous with rama” 😉

  28. KP says:

    What an inaccurate, absurd headline and article. It’s clearly a Klingon Vessel.
