Here is a photograph from NASA showing an unidentified flying object / Space creature





Original Image [ From NASA ] :




This thing is truly strange as it appears to have some type of sharp edges on the bottom of it. The UFO is possibly green in color.

Looks like a living creature to me
What do you think ?

I would like to know whats in the background before i hazard a guess at what this could possibly be.

You got any more information.

Why would you automatically assume it's a living creature? it's an unknown at this point.. I think it's unwise to jump to conclusions..

With that said, it's certainly an object of interest... but I doubt highly it's a living thing unless it exists on a diet of solar radiation and the occasional bits of space debris ..

Hey OP how did these slip past you...



Those sure look like a bunch of white orbs or do they?

It looks as though the area is all cloud cover, you get more sense of the picture if you 'reorientate' 90° to the left, what that object is if not a peak or weather balloon, while it doesn't look like either in a straightforward fashion, who knows? Looking closer, there does seem to be a bit of double imaging on the object, so it could be a camera artifact, and the picture is well blown up from the original.

An Unusual Flying Objects into Earth's Low Orbit.....

And unknown traffic in the same NASA image....

Looks like a space jellyfish.

If the ocean can have a Jellyfish, than why can't space?

Hmm, maybe that's where they came from and invaded Earth.

How did this get five stars already? It seems like nothing of any particular anythingness. A cloud? A mountain top? This is how UFO's would come if they were real, as a cloud or an illusive whatcamacallit. But this one isn't them.

Explanation: S&F!

The picture is clearly taken at a bizzare angle [straight down is clearly the lower left corner of the picture] over a large expanse of water [the pacific ocean?] ... covered by low level clouds [ATS meteorogists ... now is your chance to shine ok] and the green 'anomaly' to me looks like a lonely mountainous island poking up through that low level cloud cover.

There is something at the very bottom of the picture also ...



Personal Disclosure: Anybody know what type of camera this picture was taken with and who was the photographer on space shuttle flight STS108???


P.S. Sorry to all as I have no time to google for this as I have business elsewher on ATS to currently attend to.

Why should we believe you if you can't even link to the photo at NASA?

It could come from anywhere and some website can SAY it came from NASA because they can count on you believing anything.

Explanation: Uhmmm?


They DID link the picture in their OP and it is indeed from Nasa.



Plus the STS108 also denotes it as a space shuttle mission picture.

Personal Disclosure: You could take what data is available and obvious at face value and run with it to a logical conclusion ... unless it makes no sense. In this case I think you have your sights set on making this personal about the OP'er and aren't interested at all in seeking the facts of the matter.

Please try to stay on topic as I haven't seen the OP'er try to discredit NASA's reputation at all in this thread.

Although Jim's questions and comments are directed to the OP (Equiinox), I hope nobody will object to my posting some information.

The relevant image is from "The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth" website at:
eol.jsc.nasa.gov...

The front page of that website states: "This service is provided by the International Space Station program and the JSC Astromaterials Research & Exploration Science Directorate. Recommended Citation: Image Science and Analysis Laboratory, NASA-Johnson Space Center. "The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth.""

A relatively high resolution copy of the relevant photograph is at:
eol.jsc.nasa.gov...

Information about that photograph is on that website at:

That information includes the following:

A film image which has been scanned.
It does look like a dirty slide.

Here is the frame immediately before (1 second). The thing isn't there but other flecks of dirt can be seen in the scan.

Another frame from the same roll

Explanation: St*rred!

I have to concur with you after doing a side by side comparison which I provide here as an edited screengrab ...





Indeed the anomaly is not there.


And it is clear to me now that the anomaly I identify is most likely something on the shuttle slightly in view.

Personal Disclosure: I retract my claim that it is most likely a remote mountainous island with its head sticking up through the clouds as that is clearly debunked.

However,... I now wonder why space debris looks green?


Thank you for your helping in resolving this threads basic premise to a finite conclusion.
