The ESA prides itself on its original and untouched photos, but I can literally take any photo of theres and show how it has been photoshopped, or retouched. The ESA does this even more than NASA.
This photo I found was of asteroid Lutetia as the Rosetta mission lander flew past it on its way to the singing comet, 67P. As you can see, I added a lot of light to the photo in order to see the rest of the asteroid covered in shadows, but instead I found a rectangle UFO bigger than the asteroid itself fly behind the asteroid, just at the moment that Rosetta took its photo. I am 100% confident that the ESA saw this an covered it up with black in order to reveal a new photo this week. They didn't realize that some of us would uncover it so fast.
ESA states that asteroid Lutetia is 100km across (62 miles), and if the UFO is the same size, then its also 100km across. Makes you want to rethink what we think an alien star ship would be like, huh?
Since the UFO is as long across as Lutetia is,

Title Farewell Lutetia

This ethereal image shows a stunning sliver of large main-belt asteroid Lutetia from the viewpoint of ESA’s Rosetta spacecraft, taken as Rosetta passed by on its 10-year voyage towards comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.
This week marks four years since Rosetta flew by this ancient rocky body, on 10 July 2010. As the spacecraft swung past Lutetia it snapped hundreds of high-resolution photographs with its Optical, Spectroscopic and Infrared Remote Imaging System (OSIRIS) as well as obtaining valuable spectra, and maps of the surface temperature using other instruments.
This image was taken as Rosetta had passed its closest approach, at just under 3170 km from Lutetia’s surface, and was beginning its journey away from the asteroid.
As a result of this flyby, astronomers have been able to characterise Lutetia, viewing the wide range of craters and geological features scarring the asteroid’s surface and gauging its mass and volume–and thus density and composition. These measurements showed that Lutetia is primordial, likely having formed just under 4 billion years ago during the very early phases of the Solar System.
This asteroid is one of just two that Rosetta has closely flown past, the other being asteroid Steins in 2008.
Rosetta was launched in 2004 and, after 10 years in space, will finally rendezvous with its target comet in August. It will study the comet’s surface, dust and gases in unprecedented detail, deploy a lander onto its surface, and follow the comet for over a year as it orbits around the Sun.
Below are two close ups of the same area. The first has much more light, where you can notice that the objects are ball-like. These outer ball shells cannot be seen unless you add light to the photo. The last photo below this one, is the same, but less light so you cannot see the round shell of the UFOs.
