An amazing UFO hovering in the distance has been captured by one of the ISS (International Space Station) cameras as it orbits the Earth at 17,000 miles per hour (26,700 km/h). The video footage, which has been seen by thousands of people across the world, has UFO seekers and alien enthusiasts super excited.
Most people have agreed that compared to the majority of video footages of unidentified flying objects (UFOs), this is a pretty good one.
The filming will need to be checked by video experts to rule out reflections from the Sun or rays of light that found their way into the camera lens and distort the image.
The UFO suddenly appeared right on the horizon, rose slightly and remained there for about two minutes, before finally fading away. (Image: YouTube).
Jadon Beeson, 20, from Stourport-on-Severn, near Kidderminster in North Worcestershire, England, first spotted the UFO while watching a live feed. He has written to NASA and is waiting for an explanation.
British newspaper Metro quoted Mr. Beeson as saying:
“I was watching the live stream on my iPhone on Tuesday night and I popped away to see my neighbours and came back an hour later – I had left the stream on, on my phone.”
“I looked and realised there was a metal object above the earth. It had a blue glow to it and it stayed there for about two minutes.”
“It was a metallic object, it looks like a Millennium Falcon from Star Wars or something from Close Encounters of the Third Kind. I thought it was all very strange.”
The video was viewed using a NASA app which lets people watch live footage from the ISS.

Previous UFOs spotted near ISS
This is not the first time ISS cameras have filmed mysterious UFOs. In February a strange unidentified flying object was captured by one of the space station’s cameras. The metallic-looking object was travelling at the same speed as ISS and doing circles around it.
The strange phenomenon was first noticed by a keen astronomer in Russia.
According to UFO enthusiasts and conspiracy theorists, the European Space Agency, NASA, Roscosmos and other space agencies have thousands of photographs and videos of UFOs, but keep the information classified, either to prevent mass panic or because they have been instructed by aliens.
US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton said last month that if she wins November’s election she will declassify all secret documents relating to UFOs and aliens, as long as national security is not affected.
Over the past couple of years there have been hundreds of UFO sightings and alleged alien encounters.
