Soon after NASA denied claims by members of the online UFO community that mysterious UFOs are often sighted on the live ISS stream flying or hovering close to the International Space Station (ISS) in low Earth orbit, alien UFO hunters announced that they have spotted a metallic, possibly disc-shaped alien UFO, hovering in space near the ISS.
A NASA spokesperson had denied such claims, explaining that most alleged sightings were due to “reflections from the station’s windows, the spacecraft structure itself or lights from Earth.”
But despite NASA’s explanation, a prolific YouTube UFO hunter, Streetcap1, claims to have spotted a UFO that appears to have a shiny metallic surface flying and hovering close to the ISS (see video below).
Commenting on the latest alleged sighting in a post to his blog UFO Sightings Daily, Scott C. Waring comments that, “It is easy to make out that the shininess is caused by its metallic surface.”
“It is not a perfect disk,” he continues, “but does have areas of the disk that push outward as we see in the photo above.”
“This is one of the best examples of a UFO at the space station that I have seen in many years.”
Anticipating skeptics who could argue that the object was a man-made spacecraft or a satellite, such as the Russian Soyuz spacecraft, Waring writes, “It is easy to see that this is not any space Russian Soyuz capsule or any shipment sent to the space station.”
Skeptics have denied UFO sightings claims in the past by suggesting that some UFOs spotted approaching or flying close to the ISS could have been Russian Soyuz spacecraft, or vessels carrying supplies to the ISS from Earth, or capsules ejected from the ISS carrying waste away from the space station (see footage below).
Alien hunters have claimed thousands of UFO sightings near the ISS. According to UFO hunters, the frequency of sightings on the live ISS stream suggests a heavy alien UFO traffic near the space station.
Conspiracy theorists accuse NASA of trying to cover up evidence that the vicinity of the ISS in space is a beehive of UFO activity by shutting the live ISS stream when a UFO appears in the live feed.
The Inquisitr reported late in April that NASA waived its policy of not commenting on UFO sighting claims when a spokesperson for the agency responded to a claim that the agency deliberately shut down live transmission after a “horseshoe-“ or “diamond-shaped” UFO appeared on the live video.
An agency spokesperson denied that NASA purposefully shut down the feed, saying that loss of transmission was due to loss of signals from the ISS.
“The station [ISS] regularly passes out of range of the Tracking and Relay Data Satellites used to send and receive video, voice and telemetry from the station,” NASA spokesperson Tabatha Thompson explained. “Whenever we lose signal, the cameras will show a blue screen indicating no signal or a preset video slate, depending on where you are watching the feed.”
Another spokesperson denied claims that the vicinity of the space station is swarming with UFOs, saying that most alleged sightings were due to “reflections from the station’s windows, the spacecraft structure itself or lights from Earth [that] commonly appear as artifacts in photos and videos from the orbiting laboratory.”
But despite the explanation by NASA, alien hunters remain convinced that the ISS is often visited by alien UFOs and that the government is trying to cover up the truth.
Many members of the UFO community accused NASA of lying.
“NASA or Never A Straight Answer, as they are better known have been lying to everybody for many years.”
“It’s funny that NASA decides to ignore all the thousands of UFOs on YouTube that have been recorded at the space station,” Waring wrote in a recent blog post. “I guess when your head is in the clouds, the public opinion means nothing to you anymore. It may be time for the public to take over NASA and run it the right way.”
While UFO hunters agreed that some alleged sightings could be due to reflections, and other optical effects, enthusiasts were unanimous that not all claims could be explained away and that most sightings reveal that the space station is being visited by aliens.
Various explanations have been proffered to explain why alien spacecraft visit the ISS.
Some conspiracy theorists claim that some governments have signed secret treaties with certain extraterrestrial races, such as the Grays and the Reptilians or Alpha Draconians. The ISS was launched into orbit to provide a safe place for representatives of Earth governments to meet with representatives of alien races in space, according to conspiracy theorists.
Conspiracy theorists claim that the technological superiority of some nations is due to technology transfer treaties signed with advanced alien races during and after the Second World War.
The U.S. was the first to sign a treaty with technologically advanced Gray aliens. But the U.S. government was forced by other countries, such as the EU nations, Canada, and Japan, to share the benefits of technological partnership with advanced ETs.
This led to the launch of the joint ISS project.
Western nations were forced to allow the Russians to participate in the ISS project because they wanted to save the international “truth embargo” agreement between the world powers — including Russia — following the 1947 UFO crash incident in Roswell.
The “truth embargo,” as Stephen Bassett — executive director of the U.S.-based Paradigm Research Group (PRG), — explained recently, is an agreement between global powers not to disclose the truth that human governments have made contact with alien races.
