As long as mankind has gazed into the vast night sky above, he has wondered: hey, is that a giant alien death star ship, parked over by Mercury?

YES, according to YouTube user and space hobbyist siniXster, who has set off a worldwide media firestorm with the video above showing a massive, planet-sized alien spaceship just stone cold chilling right by Mercury, being hit with a solar flare. According to YouTube use siniXster.

"Obviously, it's cloaked," notes YouTube user siniXster.

"That is definitely some sort of manufactured object," concludes YouTube user siniXster.

According to "professional scientists" beholden to certain interests, the image is actually an image of Mercury itself, which appears due to the way the telescope imagery is double-processed to enhance its clarity.
