I came across this YouTube video today, claiming to show UFOs in NASA photos of the sun: Edit: unfortunately the original video has been taken down, but here’s another one with similar footage: At first I was quite intrigued by what I was seeing - what are these weird spherical shapes that are surviving while being so close to the sun?

“Comet Elenin (C/2010 X1), widely known for inaccurate reports of its threat to Earth, appears to be breaking apart. Observations by amateur astronomer Michael Mattiazzo of Castlemaine, Australia show a rapid dimming and elongation of the comet’s nucleus akin to that of Comet LINEAR (C/1999 S4), which also disintegrated when it approached the sun in 2000. Comets are fragile objects, so this development while unexpected comes as no surprise. “
