I have this news:

NASA UFO sighting: Alien ship 25 TIMES size of Earth spotted near the Sun

and tried to find the NASA site link by this link, but not found that news , so like to know what could be the reason of this situation, does it fake?

Thanks.

    $\begingroup$ I’m voting to close this question because flying objects are usually off-topic, unless they contain a telescope. $\endgroup$ – usernumber Jul 28 at 13:51

The Express is notorious for low-quality "science" stories. In this case, someone who wanted to see a UFO looked at images from the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory until he found a feature he could say something sensational about. One might as well say, "I like turtles, that cloud looks like a turtle, therefore turtles come from the sky." The mention of hollow sun "theory" is another red flag.

SOHO and its successor the Solar Dynamics Observatory have recorded many legitimate phenomena including coronal mass ejections and Sun-grazing comets.
