The NASA has always been tight-lipped over allegations of alien visitations, but the U.S. space agency issued a statement about it after a video made the rounds online showing several apparent UFOs crossing a window behind an astronaut on the International Space Station (ISS).
NASA released the footage online, and UFO hunters have claimed that it was conclusive proof extraterrestrial does exist.
The video was then uploaded to several UFO websites. It shows Italian European Space Agency astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti demonstrating how to operate window shutters at the space station.
As she demonstrates and talks in front of the camera, multiple white objects seem to come shooting into view.
Many UFO enthusiasts believe those are unknown objects passing the ISS and the footage is a smoking gun evidence of the existence of UFOs and aliens.
This is not the first time UFOs allegedly caught on cam passing the ISS, but videos showing the anomalies usually got cut off for no apparent reason. UFO hunters suggest that the cutting of videos has been deliberately done by NASA personnel to hide the truth.
NASA usually does not respond to UFO claims, but the agency issued a statement lately. It denied the existence or any discovery of UFOs in the International Space Station. It pointed out that the artifacts in photos and videos from the orbiting laboratory, which were posted online, were just reflections from station windows.
American astronaut Tom Jones dispelled the myth last year saying that astronauts have not observed any proof of ET life. He stated that claimed UFOs in images and videos from the shuttle or space station have turned out to be meteors, lightning flashes, drifting orbital debris, and ice crystals.
However, conspiracy theorists suspect that NASA and veteran astronaut Jones are just part of the cover-up. They dismiss NASA and Mr. Jones explanations and believe that the bright lights or objects seen on camera in the distance from the station are alien spacecraft.
