A photograph taken this week from within the International Space Station shows some type of UFO floating in the air outside. What is it? Should NASA investigate the strange encounter, or is too insubstantial?

While Space X was trying to dock Wednesday, a rectangular-shaped craft was espied off in the distance. Strangely, the anomalous craft seemed to be keeping pace with the ISS, as if it were following the station. This latest incident could lend further credence to the popular theory the ISS is being watched by an alien mother ship.

You really can't trust anything NASA claims. There are UFO sightings at the ISS every week, and the space flight administration always offers up some ridiculous explanation. What are they covering up? You can view photos of Wednesday's UFO rendered in three variations here.

People shouldn't overreact to these kinds of encounters, because they could be anything. The object spotted Wednesday might only be a light reflection from the window. Who knows?

Anyone else authenticate? Not finding anything on a quick search. I did find some other recent sightings at the ISS, but nothing about that particular video. Is this being confused with a previous sighting?

It seems to move slightly, but the satellite remains stationary. This seems to discount the idea that its a smudge.

So why exactly am I to assume that this blurry object that is made up of like 10 pixels is an alien space craft from another world?

Occums Razor anyone?

OK, I'll cut you some slack. It's way after midnight where I am, and we're just having our Saturday night party. Maybe you're enjoying some beverages, too. And I'll go even easier because agoracosmopolitan had it as their headline.

But, goodness, whatever possesed you to announce to the world that a "Rectangular Cube" had been sighted?
I've pulled out about 5% of my remaining hair (and I can't afford to lose any of it), And my hands still haven't unclenched. (I'm typing this with my toes.) Will you at least promise to never do anything like that again?

The image of the object is not clear to be a rectangular shape or a cube shape. It is neither circular or tubular. From that image being it fuzzy, it is not even possible to tell whether it is extraterrestrial or not.

My hunch is that it is another satellite orbiting the space craft. Don't think it will be a true UFO film. Nice clip though.

Forget the cubic rectangle (!), the damn snippet is even worse!

Luckily we can trust whoever wrote the article though! Air? outside the space station?

Let's not over rea...ahh screw it! It's an alien mothership!!

Btw, I did some inverting, and it looks like these are adjoining objects to each other....so it doesn't appear to be a one-piece UFO if that is the claim. Almost looks like a pair of space balls

Dear Chadwickus,

Nice to see you again, and glad to see that your brain, unlike mine, is able to continue functioning after a shock. Well done.

My new theory is that the station had to vent some air because of bad cabbage that had been shipped up. That stream of air, so unusual in space, attracted the mother ship's sensors. Because all alien mother ships travel at super-luminal speed, the aliens were there before the venting was completed, thus floating in "air," polluted as it was.

Chadwickus, you've got a strong mind, but you've got to learn to be more flexible, so you can spot these likely explanations more quickly.

With respect,
Charles1952

I think you'll find the implication is that those pixels correlate to a real physical object reflecting light
in a place where [the implication would run] there should be nothing, man-made or natural, to reflect that light.
therefore the object must be neither man-made or natural
this leaves [if the assumption still holds] the possibility that it is of extra-terrestrial origin
thus satisfying the requirements of OccAm's Razor, per your request.

.......just so we are all clear, i am not actually making any allegations to the true nature of this anomaly, this appears to be yet another case with just nowhere near enough data for sound calculations of any kind.
Just attempting to illustrate that Occam's Razor is supposed to be the simplest answer that takes all the facts into account, not the answer that we are used to or makes us comfortable.

Ya but Ice chunks, or man made debris also reflect light. And they are much more plausible. Hence Occams razor.

What reason do you have for why this cant be ice or a piece of a satellite?

On a side note: I would rather it be of extraterrestrial origin, I would be perfectly comfortable, Actually I would be happy and excited.

sorry, but what does "plausible" mean in this context? structured craft are as physically possible as chunks of ice, you know. in fact, in that frame i see definitive, undeniable proof of at least one structured craft, and absolutely zero undeniable proofs of chunks of ice.
so you could argue that Occam's Razor would favour the craft hypothethesis.... we know there's one there, another is a pretty simple deduction clearly within the realms of 'plausibility'.
Occam's Razor is not anthropocentric.
Nor is it accurate, or reliable. it's just an observation; the simplest fully accounted answer tends to be the best. but life is not mathematics and 'tends' is a loose term indeed.

NASA has also been testing the new cube satellites. Maybe this is what was imaged?

or to my mind's eye .... a DumbBell --> O-O


btw...Space X launch vehicle had one of the (8?) boosters misfire...that could be trailing 'space junk' from the resupply cargo ship

Oh yikes, if this thing is cube then it can only mean one thing...THE BORG! Prepare to be assimilated!



Sorry! Could not resist


Seriously though joking aside, I do think that there are things happening that many of us are not aware of. Black projects alone. I am sure there is a secret space command in operation. But if ailens are visiting at the moment, it would make sense to see the first private space launch. I ascribe to the theory they have been visiting for absolutely ages and are watching our development very carefully indeed.

If you read the article, its the title. I am not an expert in this field, just passing info.

I am not a believer in UFOs being ETs. I am hopeful and would love to be convinced, but currently am not.
So why don't you offer some analysis instead of arguing the semantics of a tabloids article title.

Dear ubeenhad,

I owe you an apology for causing insult or hurt. It would have been better had I not posted. After looking at the article it seemed that, until further information was available, all we could do was throw out guesses. In that situation I decided to find a little humor. It was not meant as an attack on you, I'm sorry I wrote it so poorly that it caused hurt.

The three stars? They've always baffled me. I really don't know why people give them out. I think in this case they were just getting a little chuckle out of the post.

Again, my apologies, and I'm glad you're keeping your eyes open for things and bringing them to ATS.

With respect,
Charles1952

No problems.

In all honesty my thick skin made me pass up that comment at first, but after getting my ass chewed by a mod and them making me change my avatar I was a little testy.

Thanks for the response. I have enjoyed your posts on other threads

Experience has taught me not to accept as evidence photos that seem to show brighttly lit reflective surfaces which are usually the cause of extraneous images. If something claimed to be a UFO "keeps pace" until the illumination changes chances are that it's simply the result of lens flare. What we see in the video seems to be the case.
