A UFO was spotted moving in the International Space Station (ISS) footage before NASA cuts off the live feed.

Mail Online reports that conspiracy theorists are claiming that NASA has yet again covered up a UFO sighting by cutting the ISS footage with a technical issue excuse.

In the ISS video uploaded by YouTube user Lions Ground, a tiny white speck can be seen hovering above the Earth when suddenly a gray screen appeared, followed by a blue screen for about 5 seconds. "Please stand by. The High Definition Earth Viewing experiment is either switching cameras, or we are experiencing a temporary loss of signal with the International Space Station," the video text read.

"NASA hides evidence of extraterrestrial life, this is not fair," the YouTube user wrote. "It is not the first time that NASA ends the live feed with ISS because a UFO came on camera what we are not allowed to see."

NASA has been repeatedly accused for hiding the existence of UFOs, pointing out previously that these moving specks are just lens flares or light glares from the Sun. Conspiracy theorists, however, just could not accept these explanations, as well as the UFO hunters.

In other news, a UFO hunter uploaded an image of a blue sphere -- which she thought could be a rogue planet -- in front of the Sun last week. Mexico-based Facebook user Pamela Johnson sent the said image to NASA's website claiming that the Sun has "reacted" to the planet.

Mail Online reported that NASA's Goddard Space Centre physicist Alex Young though gave a simple explanation, saying this image is "No mystery!" "Just combination of 2 NASA STEREO images (1 of sun, 1 of space) caused by computer error," he added. "[It] Happens sometimes."

NASA may have all the authority to explain these kinds of sightings, but conspiracy theorists believe there could actually be more than that.
