I view this as more hooplah than anything. It's hard to take articles like this seriously since there is such a large divide between the generally accepted way of thinking and the "far out there" scientists who make claims like this.

It would be interesting if it weren't complete ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.

There is no astrophysicist named Craig Kasnov at SETI. The story is completely made up.

Taking a story like the one that's linked in the OP seriously shows a blatant inability to form informed opinions.
If the SETI project would release such a statement it would probably show on their website or their twitter account.
In the case that something like this appear from their website you would get a larger internet discussion about the fact that SETI published it on their website and SETI would have to respond that someone hacked their website and put it online and it's not to be taken seriously.
If you think things through that what it would look like if SETI published and would have been afterwards censored.
The conspiracy theory crowed however unfortunately doesn't like thinking things to the end when that would damage their narrative.

Here's an exert from Skymap's Blog:
//Posted by admin on December 4, 2010
For the last three weeks the SkyMap has been flooded with visitors looking for “flying saucers”. The source is the news bouncing from blog to blog and lately carried by larger media sites about some mysterious space ships detected by SETI. Here’s one of the iteration of the news:
3 very large object flying to the EarthHere’s one of the article
I don’t know about SETI’s claim on space ships, but I can assure you that what you can find on DSS here is mostly telescopes, photographic plates and image processing defects.
DSS all sky survey is a digitized version of two half sky surveys that took place about 30 years ago. The original surveys were taken on photographic plates (there wasn’t digital photography back then, well, at least not in that massive form as we see it today). About 10 years ago the plates had been scanned and digitized. The process probably introduced artifacts like scratches and dust in addition to telescope reflection and photo plates defect artifacts.
What I want to say is anything suspicious you find here on DSS survey must have explanation without involving little green creatures.//
So the images are 30years old... and possibly glitches in the digital scans of photographic plates.
Also astrophysicist Craig Kasnov is not listed on SETI's site anywhere. In fact Craig Kasnoff was a journalist involved with SETI@home and released a statement:
//Craig Kasnov? SETI astrophysicist? Hmmmm.
My name is Craig Kasnoff. And I was the one who ‘co-concieved’ the idea for SETI@HOME with David Gedye.
And no, I am not an astrophysicist.
If this discussion, or the article above, is inferring that I, Craig Kasnoff, (and not Craig Kasnov) have made an announcement regarding ‘large rapidly objects approaching Earth’, then that is just plain false.
I have not been involved in any announcement of that kind at all.
However, if there is a ‘Craig Kasnov’ who is a ‘SETI astrophysicist’, then you will all have to take that up with him.
My current work focuses on the issue of Endangered Species (Endangered Species and Endangered Animals at Bagheera / Tigers in Crisis - Information About Earth's Endangered Tigers).
The issue of endangered species was one of the driving considerations in my contribution to the concept of SETI@HOME.
To me, SETI@HOME was not only a way to confirm there was possibly ‘life’ on other planets, but it was also a way to confirm there wern’t any South China Tigers, Giant Pandas, or Komodo Dragons, anywhere else but on Earth.
Because it was -and still is- my belief that when an animal is forced into extinction, that animal is not just lost to Earth, but is lost to the entire Universe.
And that is tragic.
Anyway, this post may, or may not have, made any contribution to the discussions of ‘objects flying towards Earth’. But I hope it clears up any question regarding my involvement this announcement.
I have no involvement in it.

Sadly the evidence points to an internet meme hoax.
I for one am happy we're not being invaded by aliens
