A UFO video making the rounds today features the International Space Station (ISS) and something truly unexplainable. A small unidentified flying object suddenly comes into view in the NASA video, which was recorded on NASA’s live video feed. Although some people are attributing the shocking sighting to floating space debris, the object clearly appears to be flapping a set of wings as it moves through space.
Blake Cousins of Thirdphaseofmoon shared the surprising footage online on Oct. 22, 2014. There are obviously no birds or insects in space. So what was it? Cousins described the unbelievable UFO spotted in the NASA footage of the International Space Station.
“Now we’re going to go to the ISS again. Incredible footage, as they do operations high above Earth, of what seems to be some king of insect. Could this be some kind of debris coming off the ISS? It’s kind of unusual the way it takes its left and right turns.”
Lest anyone thinks that the footage was fabricated, the original resides on the YouTube channel of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) itself, and the uncut version is available under the title Space Station Spacewalk.
People are responding by the dozens to the strange video of an unidentified flying object flapping its wings near the ISS. Thirdphaseofmoon started the discussion by asking, “Space Bugs? Let me know what you think it is!!!?”
Col Johno responded, “space bugs haha they wouldnt survive in space no bio life form would only rocks and they are not alive hahaa.”
“A piece of debris, most likely. However, it remains an unidentified object until and unless we identify and explain it,” pointed out George Meladze.
The most interesting theory of the day came from DoctorMaxMoebius. He theorized that the ISS is actually on Earth, making the whole International Space Station part of a conspiracy theory similar to the one that claims man never landed on the moon.
“There IS a small amount of gases in low Earth orbit, where the ISS ‘lives’. But perhaps there’s another explanation – the ISS is on Earth (it’s a mock-up, hanging in a HUGE stage..) – not. :-) More likely, these are remote-piloted ‘monitor drones’ in use by the military or an alien race that is studying us,” DoctorMaxMoebius wrote. “Why I suggested the ISS was on Earth is the ‘insect’ seems to use a propulsion system that mimic’s beating wings. But wings need air molecules to push against!!! Very Strange, indeed!”
Miguel Flecha took a more pragmatic approach to the sighting. He explained, “The supposed UFO appears to be a reflection from the lower edge of the debris cast upon the camera lens. Notice the speed and rotation of that lower edge compared to the movement of the spot of light. A clear metal edge wouldn’t take much light to reflect it back onto the lens, much like a mirror.”
What do you think of the latest UFO rumors? Could the ISS really have been visited by “space bugs” or some other alien life form? If not, what could possibly explain the anomalous objects spotted in the video. Comments are welcome.
