A fast moving object that was spotted flying by the International Space Station moments before its livestream went dead has conspiracy theorists claiming NASA is covering up proof of alien lifeforms or UFO findings. In the footage from the ISS channel uploaded on YouTube by user ColdPyro, a white speck can be seen emerging from the darkness just about Earth’s horizon. Right before the mysterious object travels out of view, the feed cuts to a grey screen followed by a statement asking users to “please stand by” due to technical problems.
In that footage posted on YouTube, a small bright dot becomes visible skating through the air. The unexplained object comes into focus as it hurdles towards earth. It's the common practice (to turn off the feed) by ISS whenever a UFO appears on the video, say conspiracy theorists. Hence, the ISS and NASA seem to be undertaking the usual kind of 'cover-up' of close encounters.
The UFO could be seen for only an instant – just five seconds, to the left of centre in the frame. Two seconds later, the feed cuts out to grey, followed by a blank blue screen.
In the past, a NASA spokesperson has clarified, “Reflections from station windows, the spacecraft structure itself or lights from Earth commonly appear as artefacts in photos and videos from the orbiting laboratory.”
