There goes a huge merchant fleet of UFO spaceships. Zipping through the Milky Way, it was spotted in a solar image taken by NASA's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO). It was an exciting moment for UFO seekers to spot a merchant fleet passing through the inner solar system, in order to touch base on some alien star system, they surmise.

The image was captured on September 17, 2016, and was uploaded by Streetcap1 in a YouTube video on September 18, 2016, titled "Alien Ship Passes Satcam."

The image reveals that a couple of fleets are meeting inside the inner solar system, even as they are passing on their way to another star, says Streetcap 1. There is a "circle formation of UFOs" just near the main craft, or mothership. There is also one, small craft in the middle of it.

It seems that the fleet was snapped by SOHO cameras just when different parties came together near the Sun. It looks like they were conducting "ceremonial salutations" just before they set off on an expedition.

"Notice the circle next to the main craft has a small craft at the center," explains Streetcap 1. "Standard alien greetings approach formation with the boss in the center."

Other UFO hunters said that it is not a military fleet that is made up of battleships, but merely a fleet of merchant vessels that are transporting cargo in a busy trade route, moving along the inner solar system.

This sighting recalls a February 2016 scene, when there was a giant alien structure entering our solar system. It was seen first near Jupiter's moon Europa, and had hundreds of alien crafts. That fleet was perhaps an "exploratory expedition" sent to our part of the Milky Way by an advanced "spacefaring" race.

UFO blogger Scott C. Waring said in UFO Sightings Daily blog, September 21.

"There is a main mothership, three medium ships (yellow circle), and 10 tiny craft (red circles) following it. Look how the long thin nose of the medium craft (above) is the same as the nose on the mothership below it," he says. "It looks like they are travelling together because there is safety in numbers..."

Perhaps the merchant vessels were flying together to protect precious cargo against "interstellar pirate vessels".

UFO seekers believe, that the regular UFO traffic seen on SOHO images makes it clear that a major interstellar highway is passing through our inner solar system. The Sun appears to be a "major stopover" for interstellar UFO ships.

Critics have dismissed the arguments, pointing out that the fleets in the SOHO image were mere "flaws in the digital imagery." But the UFO seekers said that the "symmetric structure of the objects" makes it clear that they were three identical crafts that had "unmistakable aerodynamic features flying in a line formation."

The main reason for the stopover at the Sun is thought to be for pumping up energy. UFO hunters feel that there is always a continuous traffic of UFO fleets that stop at the Sun in order to pull out the energy from its vast reserves.
