Well I think Hugh did ask about UFOs, I mean you got
astronauts right there to talk to.

I think the space station cosmonauts see the most UFOs.

And the black sky that astronautics did verify, what does that mean.
The moon has no atmosphere and you need an atmosphere to
see stars.
Was there any scientific reading on this.
Or the sun is so bright the stars can't be seen.
Or what did the sun look like on the Moon.
Wow, thats a question.

No probs. Thanks for trying. If it's anywhere I think it'll be on someone's PC or video recorder. Seems to have been wiped from the internet.

It's my understanding that stars can be seen without an atmosphere, it's just that they appear as steady points of light and don't twinkle. The twinkling is caused by the light refracting when it travels through layers of air of differing densities.

When the space station is on the daylight side of earth of course the stars cannot be seen because their light is drowned out by the sun, just as on Earth.

However, when the station is on Earth's nightside, the sun is hidden and so the stars become visible.
