(Stillness in the Storm Editor) The following video of a still image captured by NASA’s SOHO satellite seems to depict an object moving at great speed out of the Sun. Given the still provided in the video, it does appear like something is streaking out from the solar disk but is this really a non-terrestrial spacecraft or intelligently guided object (see above image)?
In my search to find other explanations of what this might be, I found another video from 2012.
And here is another video from 2015 with a similar streaking object.
In an attempt to offer another conclusion, consider that there is a substantial amount of material floating around in the solar system. Much of this material is not seen by various instruments because it isn’t well lit. But on occasion, conditions are right and cameras are rolling so as to capture objects zipping past that would lead some to conclude they are ET craft.
These objects can appear very strange because of perspective differences due to what the camera is focused on. For example, if a camera is focused on the Moon’s surface, objects flying past within the Earth’s atmosphere, such as birds or bats, will be blurry and obscure, sometimes being confused with massive space fleets.
The below video from 2012 is a good example of this.
So what is the object that appears in SOHO images from November 27th? Here’s a still image:
In short, I don’t know for certain. This is an exercise of exploring uncertainty, which includes navigating through what we think something might be—in this case a UFO.
It looks like the object is coming out of the Sun. The angel of trajectory appears to be parallel with a radial line that can be drawn from the center of the solar disk—meaning the object looks like it is coming out of the Sun based off a trail coming from behind it. But given how easy it is for objects of film become distorted I can’t make any definitive conclusions. Furthermore, there is only one image available, making it very difficult to form a conclusion with a high degree of certainty. While it is certainly possible that the object is an intelligently guided space craft, it could just as easily be a piece of space debris captured by the SOHO camera.
In conclusion, this is one example of how to exercise discernment, which is the practice of considering all possibilities and assessing each one correctly so as to determine which possibility might be the truth. While it is easy to say that an object is one thing or another, without substantial evidence to confirm this, it is an overextension of oneself to form a firm conclusion.
In my view and practice, discernment is best done when one acknowledges the enormous gulf of uncertainty that exists when evidence is lacking. The trappings of zealotism are to choose one theory as the truth without clear evidence to support it—becoming a form of dogma to maintain an ideological belief instead of an objectively deduced conclusion.
In short, in our pursuit of the truth, we mustn’t fall prey to confirmation bias, which supposes because we would like something to be true that it is the only explanation that exists. Keeping an open mind, in either respect, within a chosen belief or conclusion is a far more empowering technique. This way, we don’t box ourselves in with beliefs that have no substantial basis, and thus avoid the pitfalls of emotional upset when our conclusions are later revealed to be inaccurate.
Thus, the object in the SOHO image could be a UFO, or it could be something else. Objective discernment means we can’t say for certain, and this means any claim or explanation remains unproven—not discounting any other possibility of explanation.
