A UFO was reportedly spotted in NASA footage of the SpaceX Dragon as it departed from the International Space Station (ISS). Thirdphaseofmoon made the video of the unidentified flying object available online on Oct. 25, 2014. The object appeared as a glowing red light above the spacecraft.
SpaceX Dragon is a free-flying spacecraft that was designed to deliver cargo and people to orbiting destinations; it made its first delivery in 2012, revolutionizing the way that cargo is retrieved and returned to Earth. The spacecraft splashed down 300 miles west of Baja California on Sat., Oct. 25, 2014 after a four-week resupply mission to the ISS. It was carrying 3,276 pounds of cargo upon its return, according to CNN.
The following narrative is taken from the audio portion of Thirdphaseofmoon’s video as Blake Cousins describes this recent UFO sighting near the ISS.
“Breaking news just into Thirdphaseofmoon. Early this morning, Oct. 25, 2014, above planet Earth, we at Thirdphaseofmoon noticed, as the SpaceX Dragon cargo craft departs from the ISS, of what appears to be something that is observing its flight path. … Take a look.”
According to Cousins, the cameraman filming SpaceX Dragon attempted to conceal the presence of the mysterious object. He also pointed out additional blinking lights on the right side of the image.
“Notice when the UFO appears into frame the cameraman conveniently pulled back to try and hide the obvious. I added sharpness and brightness contrast to highlight what NASA didn’t want you to see. Also notice the strange blinking lights to the far right? Everybody keep your eyes on the skies. We’re not alone!”
Whenever compelling video footage of a UFO becomes available, people are more than willing to share their thoughts on what was really going on. This time was no different. Scores of people have already left comments on the Thirdphaseofmoon video to share their theories.
“This is lame,” Kip Anderson wrote. “One only need to look up from the ground on a clear night to see a UFO (probable satellite). Prove that it cannot be a satellite, then you will have something.”
M EA- spotted the unidentified flying object himself. He wrote, “yes i witnessed/watching the SpaceX Dragon departure and i agree there was ufo observing the Dragon’s progress, i believe the Boeing X-37 secret space shuttle was a unmanned cargo payload drone, probably carrying technology, maybe…”
“I believe we are interacting with other intelligent beings at our Space Station, personally,” FragranceOfChrist67 commented.
Of course, there were at least a few people who tossed out the usual suspects: swamp gas, migrating birds, Chinese lanterns, weather balloons and falling ice crystals.
What do you think? Is there a perfectly rational explanation for the alleged unidentified flying object seen observing the SpaceX Dragon, or is this UFO sighting destined to remained a mystery? Comments are welcome.
