WATCH: International Space Station Live Feed Shows UFO Flying Through Space

First Posted: Jun 04, 2016 08:15 AM EDT

A new footage captured from the International Space Station's (ISS) live feed on Thursday apparently shows an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO), with a fireball appearance, shooting through space. The clip was reportedly captured from the live stream filmed by ISS's base camera, and conspiracy theorists released it on YouTube.

Tyler Glockner, an alien enthusiast and Chief of the UFO investigating Secure Team 10 posted the clip on his channel.  "This amazing piece of ISS footage that was just emailed to me a few minutes ago has got me very excited," said Tyler Glockner. "We have posted a lot of ISS videos showing these UFOs up there".

In the video, Glockner can be heard narrating how he received the clip from a source who was watching the footage of a recorded ISS live stream, when he came across the inexplicable phenomenon. According to the alien investigator, the UFO looked like a fireball, but it couldn't be fire because of the lack of air in space which would render such an occurrence as impossible. The UFO is seen flying out of darkness and trailing behind the ISS before disappearing in the video. A lot of YouTube users were unconvinced with the UFO theory and claimed that the object was probably a meteor, one person thought it looked like the meteorite that exploded over Arizona.

This is the second such sighting that was captured from the live feed of the ISS in the last three months. In April this year, NASA had apparently covered up a possible alien sighting by cutting live feed from the ISS, after a horseshoe shaped UFO showed up on screen. According to conspiracy theorists, the space agency had deliberately shut the feed after a glowing blue object was seen getting too near the space station, and that video too was uploaded by Glockner on his channel. A NASA spokesperson said that many times light from the ISS itself can reflect on the window and look like objects positioned outside.

The owner of Secure Team 10 has previously also claimed that another such sighting was covered up by NASA in 2014, when it had stopped the live feed from the ISS when a huge yellow disk was seen close to it. Last week a couple from Ohio took a video of a UFO near the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, which has been a popular spot for such sights since the end of WWII.
