By analysing images from Sun imaging site Helioviewer, alien hunters believe they have spotted a huge UFO near the Sun. What appears to be a solar flare is actually a UFO, according to a self-proclaimed UFO expert. Conspiracy theorists believe the object is around the size of the Moon and exited from the surface of the Sun.
This has led conspiracy theorists to believe that the Sun is hollow, and aliens are residing in it.
Prominent alien enthusiast Scott C Waring claimed it is “100 percent” proof that extraterrestrials are residing inside our host star.
Mr Waring wrote on his UFO Sightings Daily: “I was watching Helioviewer when I noticed an explosion.
“When I made a close up of this area, I saw a black object shoot out of the explosion and across an area in 10 minutes.
“Although the video is fast, the time it too is long.
“Also in the explosion, there was three ripple waves opposite of the UFO, the UFO area was the only place without such waves.
“This is 100 percent proof that aliens do live in a hollow space within Earth’s Sun.”
However, the object actually appears to be a solar flare bursting from the surface – a common occurrence on the Sun.
Astronomer Chris Impey, from the University of Arizona, said most UFOs have “mundane” explanations.
He argued that there are billions of objects in the space near Earth which are more than likely the inspiration for supposed UFO sightings.
He wrote in The Conversation: “Most UFOs have mundane explanations.
“Over half can be attributed to meteors, fireballs and the planet Venus.
“Such bright objects are familiar to astronomers but are often not recognised by members of the public.”
