I do find all the people rushing to "Lens Flare" pretty hilarious, though. Going by @ufoofinterest's GIF, it's a part of the ISS. Though I can't quite seem to work out what's actually producing the light.

Lens flares are the new weather balloons.

This is somewhat misleading, HE NEVER points out the object in his tweet - naturally, because it's the ISS HDEV exterior equipment.
The caption under Kelly's picture on twitter is this:


Scott Kelly ‏@StationCDRKelly Nov 15
Day 233. Once upon a #star over Southern India. #GoodNight from @space_station! #YearInSpace

I thought Chinese lanterns were.

Or are they the new swamp gas? I get my cliche's confused.

There are many cliches when it comes to what people try to use to hastily debunk something. Weather balloons, Chinese lanters, swamp gas, hoax, now it seems to be that lens flares have joined that list.

The fact that there are people immediately saying "Lens flair, move along" demonstrates a major issue this area of... Well, I hesitate to call it science. Investigation. Of course, those who jump immediately to saying "Alien Megastructure from the Pleiades System, planet designation Khoreua" are also a major issue.

The thing is, it wasn't a lens flare. It wasn't an alien spacecraft either, but it makes me wonder how many other things have been falsely debunked.

It's the HDEV (High Definition Earth Viewing)

No, it's not. The part is mislabeled. That's not the HDEV, that's Destiny Lab's win-dow (for some idiotic reason ATS censors the word "win-dow" without a dash in the context I just used it). It's open in Scott's pic (there's a micrometeroid shutter which protects it when not in use) and the interior lights are on which is why light is coming from it.

*Here's a high resolution image with the shutter part-way open (looks like a frying pan) so you can see where it is, next to the two big antenna things hanging off Destiny's side:

Ah, that makes it clearer, thank you. The other GIF seemed to be from a different angle so I couldn't figure it out.

The confusion originated because someone found this photo which NASA referred to as a photo of the HDEV:
pbs.twimg.com...
The original photo did not label the HDEV but it's actually the white boxy thing in the back with the little slit windows on it. Someone saw that, realized the light was coming from the circular area, and thought that was the HDEV and mislabeled it. The arrow points to the right part, but it's not the HDEV, that's Destiny's window (which is closed in this picture).

Is this the source of the lights?

No, it's the circular opening just to the left of the "frying pan" (shutter). It's a window on the Destiny lab. If there are lights on the lab you can glimpse them reflecting off the edge of the window opening from the Cupola if the window is open.

Interest/Hunter,


You guys are doing it right.

Visiting the stream of latest ISS images at eol.jsc.nasa.gov... usually helps debunk such UFO "news".

It is indeed an illuminated window in the ISS itself: eol.jsc.nasa.gov...

Sadly, even the mainstream media quickly jumped on the UFO bandwagon, clearly to generate more views and sales.

I just noticed that Scott Waring offers this same video on the website ufosightingsdaily. Correct me if I am wrong. But is he not listed as a known hoaxer?


IMO, There is a problem with the label "known hoaxer" and that is that it is being thrown around like candy by anyone who doesnt believe and or spends most of their time calling everything bunk. I am not saying whether this case is true or not but "that person is a known hoaxer" is easily thrown around by people who dont believe anything about this subject matter. So be carefull before you accept that a certain person is " A known hoaxer".

If Scott Wart-thing, or Mister Enema, or Streetcrap CANNOT be called 'known hoaxers', you might as well retire those words from the English language as useless.

The problem is with those who refuse to even bother looking up the source before defending it from such labels and giving it their full belief.

The very first thing you should be doing is vetting the source.

a reply to: draknoir2

My comment obviousy goes both ways not trying to persuade anyone of one thing, no bias. The 2 replies i got to it (yours included) where quite agressive and defensive and biased to the drum off "dont say that! they are hoaxers ,believe me"
