WATCH: Massive orb takes energy from the sun?!

December 11th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Ok, we’re all big fans of a good UFO video or something we just can’t explain, but what the heck is this?!

The footage below was captured in March by NASA and has scientists baffled.

It appears to show a massive black orb hovering near the sun – when we say massive, we mean probably bigger than earth –  and doing what looks like, well, sucking energy from the surface of our sun.

Sounds mad, right? And we agree… but it’s right here. It stayed there for 80 hours and just watch what happens when it ‘separates’ from the white-hot surface…

We want, or maybe need, to hear your thoughts and comments, guys…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
