Did a coronal mass ejection “uncloak” a Klingon bird of prey ship?
You have to love the YouTube guy who noticed the object saying “it’s definitely some sort of manufactured object.”
It could very well be a glitch on the sensor, a ghost image from the planet Mercury itself. If you pay close attention, you can see that the two lines follow the same direction that the planet does. But if it’s a ghost image, why does it end so abruptly? How is it so well delimited? Why does it look like a spaceship?
The answer, according to Nathan Rich, lead ground system engineer at the United States Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC, is in the way the images are post-processed.
A series of images shot from another satellite seems to show the same thing.
