UFO enthusiasts discovered a small spacecraft orbiting around an asteroid as it goes through the Earth. NASA says a tiny moon, but conspiracy theorists think the other way around.
An asteroid tremendous in size travelled safely past Earth and conspiracy fans claim it had a hitchhiker, an alien spacecraft.
The little object that seems to have a disc shape was spotted using an enormous radar array of NASA’s Deep Space Network in Goldstone, California.
According to the independent agency of the US government, asteroid 2004 BL86 showed in the radar images along with its moon. NASA explains that such kind of moon is quite common.
The space agency states that approximately 16 percent of asteroids measuring at least 655 feet in the near-Earth population are binary, which have a smaller asteroid moon orbiting it, or sometimes triple systems, with two satellites orbiting.
However, as soon as the footage became live on YouTube, users on the video sharing site offer an opinion saying it was a spacecraft.
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory released a video showing still frames captured by Deep Space Network. Many commenters believe that the asteroid has a UFO flying in orbit around it. They describe the craft as diamond shaped and flat.
NASA reiterates that the flat object, which doesn’t flip over end is indeed a moon. Some observers suggest that NASA is wrong as any moon this thin would be tumbling end over end.
At least one commenter says that the object keeps itself steady and flies like a ship in space.
UFO Investigations Manual (Amazon link)author Nigel Watson says that Comet 67P is a big extraterrestrial spaceship and NASA has been receiving radio signals from it for the last 20 years. Watson believes that this was the reason Rosetta spacecraft was sent to Comet 67P to make contact with an alien crew. So, a UFO that has been spotted orbiting Asteroid 2004 BL86 should come as no surprise, according to Watson.
