Don't believe everything a NASA scientist tells you.
NASA hasn't told the truth in many of years.
This video being part of their lies, with their official explanation raising more questions than answers.

Well you can either trust the opinion of someone who studies the sun for many years, or the opinion of someone who once saw a youtube video of something that looked weird to them. It's up to you.

Damn, they caught me refueling the Argo.

I'll have to be more careful next time.

It could very well be a cyclonic storm (like a tornado is a sense), and the "spherical" shape seen above it is the outward dispersion of the sun's plasma as it grows farther up the atmosphere, the cyclonic forces keeping the the surrounding plasma from entering that space, similar to how there is always an eye in a hurricane.


Upvoted for real science, as amusing as it is to think of this as aliens it's more than likely natural phenomena.

Lets for one second think, yeah, that there is a UFO and it's sucking up our solar energy! The "object" was there quite a while, and I'm not sure if you've noticed but the sun is, what scientists call "bloody hot", so if it were a UFO it would need to be made of a substance which is impervious to heat or have a shield of some sort.

Now, a shield of some sort on an object the size of a planet would require a heck of a lot of energy to work, I'm sure if you went and asked the nice bloke over at xkcd he'd be able to work out roughly how much power would be consumed by a planet sized object in close proximity to the Sun, he'd probably come back with "well, if there is shielding, how would you get the energy through the shield in the first place?" followed by "it would most likely cost more in energy to run the shield than you would get from sucking up energy from the sun".

A smaller object, yeah, smaller object = smaller shield = less power required to keep the shield up, so you can get a net gain in power.

As for a shield which can absorb all the heat from the Sun so it can suck up the fuel, seems impractical, space may seem empty but it's full of floating debris, any space ship which were to travel at speeds faster (or approaching) the speed of light would be running into debris quite often (generally destroying said ship), or, best case scenario, damaging the outer case of said ship so going near a sun with a shell that has been exposed to all that stuff..... not a smart idea, so we go back to the shield theory, which doesn't work because of the size of the object and energy requirements.

Really an alien ship refueling off our sun not likely and as the science geeks explain that isn't what it is. Just to point out the ship would require the ability to resist temperatures of roughly 5800 degrees kelvin which is 10472 degrees Fahrenheit. So yeah just the fact the ship parks that close to the surface means it would be burning fuel to power what ever shields it uses to protect it and then on top of that is burning fuel to harvest what ever fuel it uses from the sun. This isn't very efficient, helium 3 which is what you want for fusion is easier to harvest from Jupiter which has an surface and outer core made of helium all you need to do is siphon off the HE3 and HE2 and you can hide behind it.
