As I was reading the Daily Mail to feed my hunger for sensation I stumbled across some magnificent Pictures taken from the ISS. On one of them I spotted something peculiar near the Aurora Borealis, what are these "dots" in this image? Debris? Ice Particles? Satellites?

In case you don't see them, I marked them on this picture:

Source Images.
I find the picture kind of amusing with the rumors of the Nazi Saucers in vicinity of the Poles.

That looks like a star off in the distance, or perhaps a satellite.
Cool picture though.

Check out SETI Discovery of fleet of UFO'S heading towards Earth on youtube. When SETI discovered this our Government took away SETI funding for a short period and then the US Navy took over their equipment.

Debris? Ice Particles? Satellites?

... Or a UFO?

I think he means this one here. I personally don't trust anything coming from SETI, but who knows, anything is possible I guess.

Occam's Razor.


That depends on what you mean by 'UFO'. Some people mean 'aliens' when they say 'UFO' which necessarily complicates things unnecessarily.

Occam's Razor says the simplest answer is most likely the truest answer.
Thus, Occam would weigh in on the side of ice particles, stars, and/or satellites, or even stray dots of light reflection from internal ISS window.

I can't say which to any definitive degree, but, I can with reasonable doubt and speculation say that the probability of the dots being UFOs/Aliens compared to the other more mundane probabilities is small enough as to be easily dismissed.

Wouldn't there be more stars visible?
The rest of the horizon is pitch black...

There are lots of videos on youtube too, here is one



Most likely a satellite or debris of some kind.
The flash is not it getting closer, its the object reflecting light, most satellites shine in the sun, it just happens that the ISS captured one such event.

Isn't the obvious next step to determine the date/time of the photo and do a heavens-above sky chart to see what -- if any -- bright stars/planets were in that direction?

Has anybody asked that question yet?
