"SOHO went into 'Emergency Sun Reacquisition' mode on Friday May 4, 2012, caused by a false trigger of the Coarse Sun Pointing Attitude Anomaly Detector. We are working on the recovery of the spacecraft to normal mode."

I'm not saying it was aliens, but...

seemingly manufactured object,

When you wish something were true... it is true.

Videos where 'tards call UFOs "ships"?

Oh, and humorous that he complains about NASA disabling the feed, then disables ratings on his video.

Couldn't possibly be an image artifact or error due to the satellite going wonky now could it? Has to be that they took the satellite offline because it showed aliens.

UFO conspiracy nuts are worse than birthers and should be marginalized in our society.

How does NASA deal with a UFO coverup conspiracy charge? By taking away all those cool toys the public gets to play with ignoring the stupid conspiracy tards and getting on with doing science, which includes trying to fix their spacecraft when something goes wrong

FTFY, idiotmitter.

I like how the video in question doesnt actually show anything other than crazyman text and a still image of the alleged UFO

SOHO may be offline, but it looks like the STEREO spacecraft are still working.

"Commander Madagascar, this is the 9321st time one of our ships has been detected. Do we reveal ourselves now?"

"No."

I think the word "sheeple" needs to be added to the category of things that make your internet argument immediately invalid once invoked...

...right along with "Hitler" and "fanboy".

No, no, no. Don't say "debris". Say "ship".

I have to wear my aluminum foil hat to keep the UFO's away from my house. I asked my neighbors to do the same but they just look at me as if I'm crazy.

Are there really people sitting at a PC 24/7 watching images of the sun just to report this shiat? I'd rather be caught playing WoW while fapping to furry porn
 
2012-05-08 11:32:57 AM
Why only a still from a video feed?

Could it be that the frames before and after make it pretty hard to claim that what's being highlighted is even a static object, let alone suggestive of what Hollywood tells us spacecraft look like?

At least they're into something cool like outer space instead of racism and/or xenophobia. They're still a couple cards short of a deck though.

THIS. Let's legitimize every juvenile, uninformed opinion that appears on the internet. NASA should be addressing every shape that bored children citizens report seeing in clouds.

I think he's barely literate.

I also think this all works much better to the tune of Star Wars.

I love how the single comment on the page perfectly shows the mindset of conspiracy theorists/"UFOlogists."

hey bud.this is awesome,what more proof do these common ordinary sheeple need.n.a.s.a. never a STRAIGHT ANWSER.keep up what you are doing my friend.good job.painmaker214

"Common ordinary sheeple" don't believe in UFOs, or believe the official story of 9/11, or think Oswald killed JFK, etc.

Now, an uncommon, extraordinary person such as "painmaker214" know the TRUTH. Sure, he may be a major farkup in normal life, but that's due to the stupid, ignorant sheeple that get in his way.

Conspiracy theorist are better than everyone else because only they have access to a higher plane of thought...the rest of us are just sheep who dumbly follow the shepherd around.

The UFOs are staying away from your house, so it should be obvious to them that it works.

*facepalm*

SOHO is an old spacecraft. Like, they're down to a skeleton flight ops crew with automated ops and about 3-4 instruments still being funded. Got rid of most folk back in 2009 (budget cuts) and have been shutting down bit by bit since, as it's pretty much replaced by the snazzier Solar Dynamics Observatory now. This particular issue is likely just an automated on-board response to something that's probably just a bit flip. It's happened more than once in the past and generally nobody notices except the flight ops crew.

No, it's not aliens. The only aliens near that project are inflatable and were purchased in Roswell, NM on a road trip. And anything close enough to the Sun to show up in the images from it would be a) flippin' HUGE and b) quite thoroughly scorched.

You may have heard the phrase, "Everyone is entitled to their own opinion". I submit that they are not. Everyone is entitled to a well-though-out opinion, but the jackoffs spouting indefensible bullshiat are not, and should be told to STFU.

It's obviously a spacecraft that's attempting to slingshot around the sun.

I used to like keeping up with the latest conspiracy stuff but after I realized that many, many of the people who's work I was reading really thought they were better than everyone else it kind of took the fun out of it for me. I think what finally soured me to the conspiracy people was a graphic of a guy with his head stuck up his own ass...there really is a narcissistic quality to the hardcore conspiracy guy, or maybe it's what you call delusions of grandeur. Call it what you will I suppose.

Nah, everyone is entitled to their opinion.

Everyone is also entitled to tell someone else whose opinion they do not like to STFU.

If you're being told to STFU, you may or may not have a right to DIAF, additionally.

In any case I reserve to LMFAO at y'all, whichever way it happens to pan out.
