>inb4 UFO hurr durr.

It does smell of the classic shit writen science journalism click bait. can post the archive.is if you guys would rather not give it clicks.

But what is that thing? remember UFO does not mean ayyy lmaos. Kinda looks like voyager probe to me. I have no idea the perspective and sizes involved here.

god this article is hard to read. I'm sorry I ever posted it.

The article isn't even consistent with itself. It says that since there were two photographs of it taken, that proved it wasn't an image artifact. Later they use that fact to claim that that proves it's not a CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) but if it was a CME it would be picked up by both imagers, and that's exactly what it looks like...
It's just a CME.

a CME that looks exactly alike twice in different times?

Could be a comet vaporizing. Cometary comas can stretch for millions of miles, and are usually asymmetrical. SOHO has discovered upwards of 3000 comets near the sun. I wouldn't be surprised if some had some weird comas.

Moreover...fuck you for posting that article, man. That shit sucked.

I know. I already went to the Dr and he said I had cancer. You should probably check your self out.

Sadly this sort of shit is the only thing reporting on such things. If there is one thing I agree with people who want to believe is that when NASA finds life it won't be immediatly revealed.

I should say alien space ships type star trek shit. not just life.

No, this is pure pseudoscientific blabber.

If this was to taken seriously in any regard...I would want to see peer-reviewed data of some basic things....like spectra of the "object", or maybe something like, hmm, I don't know, orbital parameters? If they caught two images, you can at least roughly infer parameters.
Alas this info will never come to light, because the authors have nothing more in mind than tinfoil-y conjecture.

The ultimatum is that you expect your viewpoint to be correct, that there is some "massive" object passing by the sun, whose existence is inferred by data from a 20 year old satellite.
Moreover, why did you tell me to check if I have cancer? Are dissenting opinions that rough to you?

Also, do you want to know why this is the only source reporting on this? Because its fucking technobabble, made to look pretty in text. You want to know the truth? Any astrophysicist (a broad and international group, i may remind you) would love to have their name associated with definitive proof of ETI or the like. So honestly, come off it, tQX5ylFX, its pretty boring and we've heard it before.

Whoever wrote that article should be shot.

It's a cosmic ray, if the author bothered to fucking Google it they would have known that. A cosmic ray is a charged particle which hits the detector exciting pixels when there is no light. The same thing as all the other little streaks in that image, the multiple lines are secondary particles. If you look though the SOHO archives you will find thousands. Notice their object turned up months later but was gone just an hour or two later when the next image was taken, because it's not the same thing and it's not a real object. YouTube is crammed with these videos of SOHO UFOs, of course NASA doesn't respond to the same idiots who have been ignoring the response for a decade.

They're all hoaxes. The people who repeat them are either gullible morons or trolls. Now that the obvious has been stated, that's an interesting thing about the cosmic rays affecting the detectors. The Apollo astronauts experienced a similar effect with their own eyesight. After they left low earth orbit, they saw phantom flashes of light when they closed their eyes.
