Some have suggested that it means that aliens are using our host star to harbour energy, much like the alleged Dyson Sphere which has been theorised to surround a distant star known as KIC 8462852 – or more colloquially Tabby’s Star – which was emitting light that was regularly dipping in brightness.
However, others have claimed that it proves that the sun is hollow, and is home to a world of alien beings.
Scott C Waring, a major player in the field of UFO hunting, wrote on his blog: “A giant door opened up on the sun this week, just a little bit, but enough to make a crack across the sun and through the crack shined pure white light of the world inside.
“It opened up just enough to allow motherships to exit or enter.”
It follows just a month after another UFO hunter, Secure Team 10, uploaded a video which apparently showed beams being sucked out of the sun, which they believe is proof that aliens are using it for energy.
The narrator of the video, Tyler Glockner, says that in the footage from Nasa’s cameras, a ball 100 times the size of Earth can bee seen hovering near to the sun before flying away.
