What Was the UFO Filmed “Swimming” Past the ISS?on March 18, 2013 at 11:27 am
UPDATE: Initially, I had thought there would likely be a prosaic explanation for the apparent “object” in this footage, but as it turns out, one of our readers, James F., was familiar with a hoax that had already been revealed with regard to this footage. More about this can be read at this link. James also writes that, “More specifically, the [entire] video is at http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/29942623, a two hour segment from which the ISS video was derived. [The original clip is] about 37 minutes into the video recording. Identical to the “object” video except no object.” Better to expose a fake, in our mind, than to lament the lack of evidence for very many good, unidentified anomalies these days. –MAH.
Unfortunate and discouraging that all these faked videos are being made.
Recently, a number of compelling videos that claim to depict strange UFOs filmed during NASA operations, typically via cameras mounted on board the International Space Station, have been appearing online. The typical assertion is that the cameras have successfully managed to capture proof of alien life, either in the form of intelligently controlled spacecraft, or in at least a few instances, exotic forms of life capable of thriving in the vacuum of space. While there are the occasional “unknowns” that appear, the alleged “alien” culprits are more often the result of natural phenomenon or manmade objects that have simply been misidentified.
The video above is one such instance where an unidentified object appears to pass behind the ISS, visible in the background of the frame for a few seconds; enhancement appears to show that the object has small moving parts, which contribute to the description of its movement as being similar to “swimming.” While it certainly appears there is an object in the frame, is there a clear explanation as to what, precisely, this “swimming” object may be?
The video has appeared online in a few locations, including the popular Disclose TV website, where it was accompanied with the following commentary:
Incredible footage of a translucent type entity caught briefly on NASA’s live stream of the International Space Station. The footage cuts off due to NASA pulling the plug on the transmission and replacing it with the infamous static bar screen. If this is genuine footage then it proves yet again that NASA have failed to inform the people of the world that life exists outside planet Earth, albeit in this case, a possible proteus life form or invertebrate.
Do any GR readers have an idea as to what the strange video may be showing us? Any significant ideas or contributions will be added in future updates posted here, in addition to your additions expressed through the comments section below.
