But skeptics have repeatedly tried to debunk the claims by UFO hunters, arguing that most of the alleged UFO sighting claims have simple naturalistic explanations, such as reflections of light on camera lenses, parts of the space station projecting in front of the camera, lights from Earth, meteors in space and sometimes man-made space junk.
However, UFO hunters dismiss the explanations, saying that they are part of efforts by the government, the mainstream media and science to keep people in the dark about the fact that we are not alone in the universe and that our solar system is teeming with aliens conducting explorations in advanced UFO spacecraft.
The latest space UFO footage, according to UFO hunters, adds to the mounting alien and UFO evidence.
According to the popular UFO blogger Scott C. Waring, in a January 12 post to his UFO Sightings Daily blog, the footage was shot by an astronaut conducting extravehicular activity (EVA). The astronaut used a GoPro camera to shoot the video. And while shooting the video, he unintentionally captured an alien UFO approaching the space station.
"This amazing footage was shot from an astronaut's GoPro while outside the space station this week," the UFO hunter announced to his blog followers. "The GoPro was hooked up directly with the live Internet link for all to see."
Anticipating responses by skeptics that the object might have been a reflection of light on the camera lens or some other optical effect, Waring argued that the footage showing the alleged UFO doing a "perfect 180-degree" turn proves that it was not an optical effect or an image glitch.
"How do I know this is a UFO? Watch and see how this does a perfect 180 degree turn in the sharpest possible way that even an F16 could not match."
