Sun “Sphere” Debunked: Not a UFO and Not Nibiru

March 14, 2012 2 comments

Telescope images captured of the sun on March 11, 2012 show what appears to be a planet-size shadowy object tethered to the sun by a dark filament. In the image sequence, a burst of brightly lit material can be seen erupting from the sun’s surface surrounding the dark object, after which the orb detaches from the sun and shoots out into space.

The footage, a composite of images captured by the Solar Dynamics Observatory  and processed by scientists at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, has quickly garnered attention on YouTube, where viewers are suggesting it shows a UFO spacecraft refueling by sucking up solar plasma, or at the very least, the birth of a new planet.

However, according to NASA scientists, the feature is actually a little-understood, but frequently observed, type of solar activity called a “prominence,” and the way it is situated beneath another solar feature gives it its otherworldly appearance.

The thread extending from the lower left edge of the sun in the video is known as a “prominence,” a feature containing cooler, denser plasma than the surrounding 3.5 million-degree Fahrenheit corona, said Joseph Gurman, project scientist in the Solar Physics Laboratory at NASA Goddard. It isn’t yet known exactly how prominences develop, but these dense plasma loops can extend from the sun’s surface thousands of miles into space.

“When prominences are that extended in height above the limb (edge of the sun), it’s usually a sign that they’re about to erupt, as this one did,” Gurman told Life’s Little Mysteries.

C. Alex Young, a solar astrophysicist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center who runs a website called The Sun Today, explained that the prominence is situated below a tunnel-shape feature called a filament channel, (coronal prominence cavity, or polar crown cavity). “When you look at it from the edge of the sun, what you actually see is a spherical object. You’re actually looking down the tunnel. And this tunnel sits up top of the filament,” Young explained at The Sun Today. He added that the development of these structures is quite common. Alex Young’s video can be seen below.



But why is the prominence dark? Gurman explained that all the light in the SDO images is the same color — a specific wavelength that is emitted by iron atoms that have been ionized 13 times, known as Fe XIV. The dark filament seen in the images (the refueling UFO’s “tether,” according to YouTube users) is a part of the prominence that happens to absorb light of this color, making it appear dark. “The absorption is typically seen in lines such as Fe XIV only in the thinnest, densest parts of the prominence, which is here seen edge-on as it rotates over the solar limb,” he said.

In the image sequence, there is a burst of activity around the prominence, and then it and the filament channel shoot out into space immediately afterward. According to Gurman, the first event was probably an outburst of the sun’s magnetic field called a coronal mass ejection. “It’s generally accepted, though still not conclusively proven, that prominence eruptions occur when the overlying magnetic field that contains the prominence material is disrupted,” he said.

Another image showing the same coronal mass ejection and prominence eruption was captured by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory on Monday. In this image, which captured light in the visible wavelength range, a bright swirl of material from the prominence trails the fainter edge of the coronal mass ejection as the two plunge into space.

Less exciting than a refueling UFO or a brand new planet, maybe — but there’s nothing quite like the truth.

You see a lot of these types of “odd-thing-near-sun” things on YouTube, based off video feed from the Solar Dynamics Observatory. That’s basically because the SDO is new (just two years old), and people are not used to the amazing displays the sun puts on. Some of which will be new to science as this the the best view we’ve ever had of the sun.

There are numerous papers describing these cavities, so I’ll just give some links, extracts and images:

We propose to define a polar crown cavity as a density depletion sitting above denser polar crown filament plasma drained down the cavity by gravity. As part of the polar crown filament, plasma at different temperatures (ranging from 50 000 K to 0.6 MK) is observed at the same location on the cavity dips and sustained by a competition between the gravity and the curvature of magnetic field lines.

Cavities are commonly observed as part of a CME, but may also exist before eruption (Sterling and Moore 2004; Gibson et al. 2006). Such quiescent cavities appear as dark, semi-circular or circular regions, often surrounding a central prominence (relatively cool and dense plasma suspended in the solar corona), and embedded in a helmet-shaped white-light streamer (Figure 1, left). They are ubiquitous: several may be visible on a given day; and can be long-lived (on the order of months): either reforming or only partly erupting in CMEs.

At the limb, the geometry of the cavity enclosure becomes
more visible because of projection against the background sky.
One typically then sees a white-light coronal streamer, often
with a hollow cavity underneath. Such cavities sometimes form
long-duration X-ray arcade events and launch coronal mass
ejections (CMEs) of the “streamer blowout” type.

Seen in the accompanying movie, forward modeling was used to predict morphology of a coronal prominence cavity. The animation shows EUV observations of a cavity from NASA’s STEREO spacecraft on the top/left, as well as the forward-modeled predicted EUV for the coronal cavity on the bottom/right. As time goes by in the movie, it’s possible to see the 3-dimensional, tunnel-like cavity rotate past.

Proof that ‘kingufokid’ initiates hate

January 26, 2009 Leave a comment

Below is proof that Robert Thorson, AKA kingufokid on YouTube initiates hate without provocation. He came to our video on our YouTube page and made the comments below right off the bat. Instead of acting like a normal, stable adult, he chose to make his trademark allegations while being obscene with cursing. We here at Yowcrooks have seen many comments from kingufokid where he is accusing many YouTube users of being a character by the name of Rich Giordano, or that everyone who disagrees with his footage is “being paid” by Giordano to “harass him”. To our understanding this Rich Giordano had kingufokid on his weekly radio show at BlogTalkRadio some time ago and things didn’t go too well. Since then a bitter battle has broken out, although we have been made aware that Rich Giordano has not had contact with kingufokid via YouTube, or by any other means, for a long time. It seems to us that kingufokid is choosing an easy target by making these allegations to whoever disagree’s with his so-called “UFO and alien footage” because Giordano, along with many others, didn’t or don’t buy his story. We have been the latest victims of kingufokid’s delusional, paranoid and vulgar ways. Instead of being a decent human being, he chooses by himself to remain obnoxious towards anyone who has an opinion about him or his videos. We here at Yowcrooks don’t “hate” on anyone, we see what we see and report it in the nicest possible way that we can. Below are the comments kingufokid recently left on our video on YouTube. It’s important to know that he came to our video without being provoked by us to make these obscene comments, as he does with most other YouTube users. If he saw our blog with his picture on it and another article we ran on him a while back, he could of defended himself in a better fasion and we would have considered removing his picture and the article. Unfortunately reacting with allegations, threats and vulgarity is what kingufokid does best, while at the same time accusing everyone else of doing the same when most of the time they aren’t. They just disagree with him.


The first comment, as you can see, is an allegation, two infact. The first is that we are “haters” and the second one that we, or this blog/our YouTube page, is run/owned by this Rich Giordano fellow. Rich Giordano has no association with us, our blogs, or our YouTube page in any way. Both these allegations by kingufokid are FALSE.
The second comment is just a typical comment by someone of kingufokid’s limited intelligence. Unfortunately for kingufokid, we have more people believe in our articles because they are true than he does with his videos because his claims are untrue. And we don’t force anyone to believe in anything using vulgar profanity, threats or violence. On this alone, kingufokid’s comment that we “can’t make anyone believe our bulls**t” is totally irrelevent because we don’t force anything on anyone or react with hatred if they don’t believe us. Therefore, his second comment is FALSE.
The third and final comment is pretty much the same as the second. Just random babbling with name calling and the threat of “going to hell”. The “making up lies about people” is pure classic, considering kingufokid lied in all three comments he left on our video, this is a prime example of the pot calling the kettle black! One again, his third and final comment is FALSE.

Also, just to be aware, kingufokid also owns the YouTube channels cowardsattack (now suspended), ufoattacks and roberthaterproof which he uses to rate all his videos on his kingufokid account with 5 stars before disabling the ratings on them. He also uses these accounts to spread more vulgarities throughout YouTube.

UPDATE: Since discovering we published his obscene comments on our blog, Robert Thorson, AKA kingufokid has removed some of them off of our YouTube video comment page. This is a fairly recent feature YouTube has brought in allowing users to delete their own comments that they have left on other peoples videos. Unfortunately for kingufokid, he can’t hide his comments from the print screen key and the proof is left behind of his comment removal via the words “Comment removed by author” underneath his name!

And now for something completely different

December 3, 2008 Leave a comment

Something abit different here but still relevant to frauds and hoaxes. For those of you who regulary use YouTube and watch videos on UFOs etc, you have no doubt come across this character, Robert Thorson, AKA kingufokid from Fresno CA. This user has had around five YouTube accounts now, mostly remembered for his ‘theufokid’ username, all resulting in them being suspended because of his constant vulgarities and threats towards other users who question his so-called “real UFO videos”. We have no doubt, aswell as proof, that this individual suffers from mental health problems and is/was a known methamphetamine user who apparently went into rehab for his addiction. On the metacafe website this is made clear by posts he made under the name of ‘ufokid’ on a video titled: Meth – Not Even Once. See below.


Now methamphetamine addiction, or any sort of drug addiction is no laughing matter, but it’s pretty obvious to us that the reason this person is the way he is, is because of methamphetamine use. The psychological effects of methamphetamine include, euphoria, dysphoria, increased attention, increased alertness, excessive talking, rapid speech, irritability, nervousness, anxiety, paranoia, delusions of grandeur, panic, aggressive and sometimes violent behavior, severe depression, suicidal tendencies, hyperactivity and excitability, increased sense of well-being, and emotional lability. Occasionally excessive and/or chronic use of methamphetamine can lead to amphetamine psychosis, with side effects such as hallucinations, paranoia, delusions, and thought disorder. Alot of these effects can be seen in the type of comments kingufokid leaves for people and in many of his videos.


There are hundreds more comments like this, so many infact it would take up a whole page on our blog. To finish with, we also have evidence kingufokid is making false copyright claims against other peoples videos who show his footage is nothing more than helicopters and planes. This is a favourite tactic when it comes to people being exposed for who and what they are. We recommend you watch the videos below by the YouTube user spisforme. kingufokid had one of this users videos removed because the users children even debunked kingufokids footage as nothing more than a helicopter! Also evidence of criminal convictions which can be found here: Robert Thorson convictions. All you have to do is type in his name.

We have seen and read some bizarre things in our time, but when it comes to this kingufokid character we’ve not seen anything like it. The person himself is more bizarre than the claims he makes regarding his videos, which he is convinced shows extraterrestrial spacecraft, aliens, bigfoot, ghosts, demons etc, you name it, chances are Robert Thorson claims to have video taped it! We can only guess how long it will be before he is suspended from YouTube again for his erratic and dangerous behavior.
