KEY POINTS

  • A UFO was spotted flying near the ISS
  • The UFO appeared on NASA's live stream footage
  • The UFO followed the ISS for several minutes

A UFO expert claimed that one of NASA’s cameras captured an alien vessel closely following the International Space Station (ISS). In can be seen in the video that the UFO followed the station for a couple of minutes before flying away.

The UFO sighting was made by Scott Waring of ET Data Base. He said the incident was caught by one of the cameras mounted on the ISS. The footage captured by the camera was streamed live by NASA on its website.

According to Waring, the mysterious object flew near the ISS for about 15 minutes. He said the object may have been following the station because it seemed it was trying to keep up with its speed. On average, the ISS orbital speed is over 17,000 miles per hour.

Since the object remained with the ISS for quite a long time, Waring ruled out the possibility that it was just the Moon. He noted that if the object were just Earth’s natural satellite, it would have only lingered on screen for a couple of minutes.

“I was watching the live cam and noticed the huge glowing object that matched speed with the space station,” Waring wrote in a blog post. “It was visible on NASA live cam for 15 minutes. If it was the Moon, it would only be visible for a minute and a half at most. I've seen the Moon a hundred times on the cam...this is not it.”

After a couple of minutes, the UFO moved from the bottom to the top part of the screen while following a slightly curved path. Interestingly, the object started flying away from the station until it completely disappeared.

According to Waring, the footage captured by NASA clearly shows that alien vessels oftentimes visit the ISS.

“The UFO moves from bottom to top but instead of moving in a straight line, it suddenly curves and moves to the upper left,” Waring stated. “At this point the object begins to move away from the space station at incredible speed.”

“Why won’t NASA ever talk about these UFOs? Because they are real,” he continued.
