The possibility of aliens has piqued the interest of humanity for centuries, now one conspiracy theorist believes he has the proof. A short video from the Helio Viewer, which monitors the Sun from the Solar Dynamics Observatory – satellite from NASA – shows a series of black dots flying by our host star.
While there are hundreds of objects in the video, one conspiracy theorist believes he has identified a huge spaceship in the midst of the footage.
Prominent alien enthusiast Scott C Waring has claimed there is an intelligently designed spaceship in the video.
Furthermore, Mr Waring claims the UFO in question is roughly the same size as the Moon.
The conspiracy theorist, for some reason and without explanation, also believes NASA will not tell the world of a potentially huge alien space ship in our solar system and the space agency will attempt to cover it up.
Writing on his blog UFO Sightings Daily, Mr Waring said: “This video from Helioviewer actually has a massive tube like UFO shoot past.
“This really looks like an intelligently made craft. The UFO is actually seen twice by two different filters, once in black and once in white.
“The UFO is about the size of Earth’s moon. Why didn’t NASA alert the world about it? Because they know its not a meteor or asteroid.”
There are hundreds of thousands of space rocks, which can be anything from a few centimetres to hundreds of miles, within our solar system, so it would not be a surprise if one of them was picked up in NASA images.
Some scientists would argue the object is a piece of space dandruff floating in front of the camera.
Former NASA engineer James Oberg first popularised the phrase, stating space dandruff can be anything from tiny rocks, to chips of paint which have fallen off a rocket.
Mr Oberg said: “I’ve had enough experience with real spaceflight to realise that what’s being seen in many videos is nothing beyond the ‘norm’ from fully mundane phenomena occurring in unearthly settings.”
He added the human brain is not programmed to make sense of tiny objects floating around in zero gravity.
