Incredible Footage Of UFO Transiting Moon With Thrusters Firing Sparks Controversy: Alien UFO Or NASA Black Project Spacecraft?

Footage, first captured in 2014 by an online UFO hunter, shows a "high altitude UFO" with structures that look like three rocket thrusters transiting the face of the moon at great speed. The footage sparked a debate among members of the UFO community when it was first uploaded online more than a year ago. And it sparked fresh discussions after it was reposted to YouTube recently.

UFO researchers debated whether the craft, believed to be shown firing three thrusters as it flew over the face of the moon, was a government black project spacecraft or an alien UFO.

YouTube sky watcher Crrow777, also known as Crow Tripplehorn, recently reposted the old clip (see below), first uploaded to his YouTube channel in November, 2014. The footage appears to show a UFO flying at tremendous speed against the backdrop of the moon and firing thrusters. It appears, according to Crrow777, to slow down each time the thrusters fire.

"Many followers asked me to redo this clip so here it is," Crrow777 writes. "Shot well over a year ago, this clip shows a very high altitude craft with three rocket-like thrusters."

"Shot well over a year ago, this clip shows a very high altitude craft with three rocket-like thrusters."

He describes the UFO as an "apparent space vehicle" firing three engines as it flew against the backdrop of the lunar surface.

"What are we looking at here? While we cannot claim to know, beyond a doubt, we can state with a certainty what it is not," the skywatcher wrote at the time he first uploaded the footage online.

He explained that the UFO appeared to be an "intelligently controlled craft" flying at an estimated altitude of 200 miles to 400 miles above Earth, within the range of low Earth orbit (LEO).

Crrow777 claimed that many online UFO researchers attempted to match the mysterious UFO with known space agency activities at the time -- including the Russian and Chinese agencies. And although NASA and the Chinese space agencies had space activities scheduled, the specific date, time and type of scheduled activities simply did not match the observed craft.

The sky watcher concluded that the craft was certainly not "a listed satellite" because it had been checked against all known satellite lists at the time.

"It is not a listed satellite as it has been vetted against known satellite lists."

While some members of the UFO community expressed the view that the evidence pointed to an alien UFO interloper in orbit, most analysts thought that it was very unlikely that an alien UFO piloted by technologically advanced alien species across vast interstellar space would rely on relatively primitive retrorocket technology to slow it down. They argued that the observable features of the spacecraft were remarkably similar to the current status of human rocket technology, but agreed that it does not show any known or "listed" man-made satellite in orbit.

The apparent contradictions led some UFO researchers to examine the mystery of the UFO from a different perspective. They pointed out that the preceding observations were based on the assumption that the footage actually shows a UFO with thrusters firing.

"It could be that one side of this UFO is reflective material. It is spinning very slowly as it moves across the moon."
