ALIEN hunters believe they have spotted a UFO flying near to the International Space Station and claim NASA is intentionally trying to hide the evidence.
A live stream from the International Space Station (ISS) has revealed what appears to be an object hovering near to the floating laboratory. The object appears to hover near to the ISS, with UFO hunters claiming it is a ‘classic disk’ style spaceship.
Conspiracy theorists not only claim this is evidence that aliens keep a close eye on Earth, but also that NASA is attempting to cover it up.
The sighting was first made by conspiracy theorists Secure Team 10 before being picked up by prominent alien hunter Scott C Waring.
Mr Waring addes NASA may have missed the supposed UFO sighting as many employees will be at home during the coronavirus pandemic.
The conspiracy theorist wrote on his blog ET Database: “A UFO seen at the space station on live cam. This UFO looks like a classic disk design.
“The metallic glint is unmistakable. It looks to be in lower orbit as the space station passes it in upper orbit. Awesome catch, very rare, but absolutely real.
“This is what NASA does not want the public to see, but this UFO was so faint and so small, that I’m sure they missed it, especially since most of NASA is at home on lockdown, probably fooling around instead of doing real work.”
Scientists who have worked for NASA in the past have a much simpler explanation for all of the bizarre UFO sightings reported.
According to former NASA engineer James Oberg, most UFO sightings are nothing more than “space dandruff” floating in front of cameras.
These specks of dandruff can be anything from bits of chipped paint drifting aimlessly in zero gravity, flakes of ice or ISS insulation that has broken off.
He said: “I’ve had enough experience with real spaceflight to realise that what’s being seen in many videos is nothing beyond the ‘norm’ from fully mundane phenomena occurring in unearthly settings.”
Mr Oberg argued the human brain is not wired to make sense of these tiny objects floating above Earth.
Just last month, Mr Waring claimed to have seen glowing UFO’s outside the orbiting laboratory.
The 22-minute long footage shows the bus-sized UFO moving at the same speed as the ISS, which moves at 78km/second.
At the end of the live feed stream, the UFO shoots upwards and disappears, leaving behind a green burst of light.

During the NASA footage, the space agency workers are discussing maintenance on the space station.
However, at one point, the NASA live camera suddenly “notices something down there and begins to zoom in on it”.
Scott Waring said: “That is NASA zooming in on the UFO, not me.
“They are as baffled by it as I am. They don’t know what it is or why it is there.
“During the feed, they mention coordinates, and that could be secret code as to the location of the object. They don’t want to be too obvious.”
