From the MailOnline:
A strange object flying close to the sun looks unnervingly like a huge, metallic ‘mothership’ familiar from Hollywood blockbusters.
The picture was released by Nasa’s sun-watching Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, known as SOHO – and has become an immediate cult hit on the internet.
UFO fan site Gather News said: ‘An unusually shaped, gigantic UFO was spotted on the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) and posted in a video on YouTube.

An enlargement of the object makes the enormously large UFO look like a ship straight out of a Hollywood movie
‘The unidentified flying object, which bears no resemblance to anything ever spotted near the Sun, somehow manages to withstand the blazing heat thrown off by solar flare activity and the incredibly high temperatures emanating from nuclear fusion generated on the surface of the star. What is it?’ asked the site.
UFO fans on YouTube have been highly enthusiastic about the object, with many claiming it as a definite ‘spot’.
SOHO, the Solar & Heliospheric Observatory, is a satellite built to study the Sun from its deep core to the outer corona and the solar wind.
SOHO was launched on December 2, 1995.
The twelve instruments on board SOHO communicate with large radio dishes around the world which form NASA’s Deep Space Network are used for data downlink and commanding.
‘The video shows what looks like a metallic, jointed spaceship with a gigantic extension, perhaps a boom arm, anchored off its lower end.

Alien spacecraft? Observers pointed out that the ‘jointed’ arms of the object near the sun are very similar to fictional interstellar craft.

I took a screenshot and added light to it and you can see another part of the ship. It has another third arm that goes down. So strange. Keep up the great work,’ says one UFO fan.
Others are more sceptical, claiming such artefacts are often the product of distortion hitting SOHO’s sensors.
‘There is no way this object is merely vapour, as the shape of it is rigidly straight and grooved and appears to be manufactured in some way,’ says the UFO fan site. ‘Also, there seems to be some intelligent design involved. It’s beyond human engineering to create.’

Hmm..according to mainstream science there still isn’t proof of an advanced K3 civilization investigating us.
Most of the stars in this Galaxy are 4 billion years older than our Sun, why isn’t there a chance that perhaps one civilization is here checking out the primitives?
I know I posted something like this a couple of years ago, but this is an updated video from the NASA SOHO spacecraft orbiting our Sun.
Take a good look. Are they alien spacecraft, or just photographic “artifacts” as NASA purports?
You be the judge.
NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) opened for business yesterday and caught a short solar show. Enjoy.
We go from observing “Ra” in all his glory to this NASA photo of the Iceland volcano to see the very “Devil” in the Earth.
Today’s hat tip does to The Daily Grail.
Michio Kaku is considered a radical among his mainstream peers. He has written several books that are at the ‘fringe’ of physics; “Physics of the Impossible“, “Parallel Worlds” and “Hyperspace” are, but a few of his publications that explore extreme science.
Starting today, Dr. Kaku starts a new television show on the Science Channel called “Sci-Fi Science: Physics of the Impossible” in which he discusses subjects that would’ve been considered “tinfoil hat” a decade ago:
Explore the world of the seemingly impossible with the all-new series SCI FI SCIENCE. Hosted by internationally-renowned physicist and co-founder of string field theory, Dr. Michio Kaku, this series poses the idea that science fiction may not be so far from science fact. Examine topics that currently seem so far out… of the realm of possibility, such as invisibility cloaks, teleportation, time travel and more.
Is he a self promoter? Sure. He has to be in order to get the general public interested in science. Especially hard to understand esoteric physics.
UFO ‘disclosure’ from the US government has been a long sought after endeavor by the likes of Steven Greer, Alfred Webre and Michael Salla for decades. Recently, disclosure was supposed to happen around Thanksgiving.
But of course, it never happened.
Fortean/symbologist Christopher Knowles has a take on ‘disclosure’ that is finding more fans among the more serious students on the UFO subject; ‘ultra’ or as Mac Tonnies observed, ‘crypto-terrestrials’:
Well, another ‘disclosure event’ has come and gone. I haven’t really been keeping track of how many there have been, but it seems as long as I’ve been paying attention to the UFO phenomena people have been making remarkable predictions of upcoming disclosures that have yet to come to pass. I do remember that expectation was running very high in the mid-90s, and UFOs were everywhere in the media, but…nothing. I wasn’t plugged into the pre-Internet UFO community per se, but I know there were a number of predictions (made by people like Jeanne Dixon and Phyllis Schlemmer) that some kind of massive UFO landing was due in the late 70s and nothing came of that either, obviously.
Anyone who approaches the UFO phenomena with an open mind comes to realize that whatever it is, it’s a much deeper, much, much older and much more prevalent reality than what the mainstream media- at least in certain western nations- would ever have us believe. It’s only natural then to assume that people in government are aware of it, have access to greater knowledge about it than you or I, and are intentionally keeping it all from us. But there’s also the possibility that the government knows about the phenomenon but also knows there’s nothing it can do about it, which some of the evidence speaks to as well. And governments generally don’t like to admit their impotence in the face of a superior power.
If these UFOs and aliens aren’t simply some kind of perpetual human delusion (which I’m not necessarily discounting), than I’ve personally never seen any evidence to dissuade me from the ‘ultraterrestrial hypothesis’- that we’re dealing with some kind of parallel reality to our own. Those massive interstellar distances might not be daunting in sci-fi but are quite a bit more so in sci-fact. The sheer scale of sightings and the millennia over which they’ve taken place tends to mitigate against ETs jetting back and forth from Sirius or the Pleiades, at least in my opinion. Which by default bolsters the UT hypothesis, if one is so inclined.
I’m partial to the Igigi theory myself, since all of the sightings and anecdotes we’ve heard strike me as some kind of monitoring/surveillance. Abductions/contact/experience reports speak less to the old “take me to your leader” trope one might expect of extrasolar visitors, and more a kind of “let’s keep an eye on the Project” kind of behavior you’d expect of some stay-behind monitors. It sounds cold, but it all strikes me as the kind of contact that human scientists have with fauna in the wild, more than any kind of preparation for a massive landing at the UN.
I’ve studied the UFO phenomenon on and off for over thirty years and have often wondered why the ‘aliens’ are almost always ‘humanoid’ in structure, especially when current theories of exo-biology claims since intelligence is an ‘accident’, other intelligent creatures in the Universe would just as soon look like vacuum cleaners?
Like everyone else, I just have an opinion and chances are, we’ll never know the complete truth.
It has been running around in the astronomy circles that this past August was the first time in more than a century the sun didn’t have any sunspot activity.
Sunspot activity is linked to climate cycles of Earth, much more so than the vaunted “anthropic global warming” we are supposedly experiencing.
Now according to Ted Twietmeyer of Data4Science.net , the resumption of Sol’s sunspot activity is perhaps a little odd:
For years I have publicly announced that manipulation of our nearest star has been taking place. It was announced in August, that it had been more than 100 years since the sun did not manifest sunspots for an entire month. Now we’re almost into two months…until now:
What’s quite amazing about this sunspot (which no one is talking about,) is that this sunspot appears to have a square geometry as shown in the enlargement below:
In the upper left corner a dark feature is visible. Only a few of these objects were visible across the entire surface when this image was taken. Superheated plasma dancing randomly can be seen everywhere in this image. Each of these tiny peaks are actually hundreds to thousands of miles high.
Yet this lone, square sunspot appears out of nowhere.
I’m not an astronomer or a solar scientist, but a square sunspot is definitely different by any stretch.
It kind of goes along with the hexagon storm at Saturn’s North Pole , but who am I to say?
Twietmeyer’s premise if I’m reading this right is that the sunspot might be intelligently controlled, by us.
Weird stuff. And the mainstream scientists either deny the evidence of their extented “eyes”, or ignore it altogether.
Take some magic ‘shrooms boys and lighten up! 😆
Larry Klaes of the Tau Zero Foundation writes at the Centauri Dreams blog about how “explosive” the Universe really is and how we perceive the twinkling lights in the sky as a peaceful, beautific scene is severely flawed:
When we look up at the night sky with our eyes alone, everything about it seems calm and even peaceful. Aside from a passing airplane or satellite, only the occasional meteor or twinkling star indicate any natural activities up there. Otherwise, the Universe seems almost immobile and permanent, even when we watch the stars for a long while.
Recent news by the astronomy community shows just how much of an illusion this perception actually is. On May 14, NASA announced the discovery of the youngest local supernova remnant yet known, an object unpoetically known as G1.9+0.3, located near the center of our Milky Way galaxy about 26,000 light years from Earth.
Though most stars exist for ages far longer than human minds can conceive, they are not immortal. Some last for billions of years and eventually more-or-less quietly fade away; this will be the fate of our Sun.
More massive suns do not exist for quite so long, nor do they leave the Universe peacefully. These natural fusion reactors often end up in a titanic explosion called a supernova. Some lose their nuclear fuel, causing their cores to collapse and release huge amounts of energy in the process, leaving a neutron star or black hole in their wake. Other large suns that are part of a binary system where one star is a white dwarf create their death act when too much material from the giant star is pulled onto the white dwarf companion, causing its core to heat enough to create runaway nuclear fusion and tear itself apart.
White dwarf stars are not only formed in binary systems, main sequence single stars such as F, G and K types are capable as well. When these stars age, they use up most of their hydrogen fuel. Our sun is a type G, so it is theorized that as it ages and uses up its fuel, it will swell in size as it tries to fuse heavier elements like helium and lithium. The core starts to get more dense as it converts the heavier fuels into heavier yet materials, but the surrounding gas envelop expands. Eventually, the sphere will gulp down Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and eventually Saturn as it enters its red giant phase:
As a red giant, the Sun will have a maximum radius beyond the Earth’s current orbit, 1 AUm), 250 times the present radius of the Sun. However, by the time it is an asymptotic giant branch star, the Sun will have lost roughly 30% of its present mass due to a stellar wind, so the orbits of the planets will move outward. If it were only for this, Earth would probably be spared, but new research suggests that Earth will be swallowed by the Sun due to tidal interactions.
Eventually the Sun will “blow” off the outer gas layers in a “semi-nova” (because it’s not massive enough to collapse into a full nova) and a white dwarf star will result.
Of course by then I fully expect the Solar System to be empty of life, either by Exodus, Diaspora, already extinct or transcension by Singulary(s) (or other means).
The Universe is an interesting, and violent place.
Even our own little corner of it has that “take a walk on the wild side” quality!
