UFO near Mercury?

When a solar flare was washing over Mercury, NASA observed a "cloaked ship" next to Mercury.
There is a video:

Did anyone give an explanation yet? Does it mean there's a real alien spaceship in the solar system? If so, people might find a way to observe that, which indeed is mind-blowing.

Is there anymore information on this sighting? Or has NASA determined if what they saw was merely a solar flare or a piece of a particle flying through space?

It surprises me that people still believe that they are seeing spaceships when so much evidence points to the fact that this is almost completely impossible-- we are still struggling to find life evidence on Mars! I would like to know what actually DID happen though to create the image of a "spaceship".

Very interesting article. Though it is highly unlikely that this object could be a UFO, it is still very interesting to imagine the "what if" scenario.

I vote no on the whole spaceship idea. Both being so close to the sun and some mysterious cloaking device both seem too fictional.

The link talks about how the mark by Mercury was most likely made, so I felt in the same article that posed the question, the authors essentially were able to say it was not a UFO. Even if they weren't able to, I don't think that aliens would be hanging around Mercury. For one, it's a desolate place, ridiculously hot and pretty boring. Like mwalkows said a few posts before me, we are still trying to find life on Mars, so I think worrying more about that and less about potential UFO's would be more beneficial.
