Sometimes you wonder exactly what NASA knows about the possibility of UFOs flying around in the upper atmosphere of our planet.  Especially when live feed catches three unknown object flying out into space – and then the feed is abruptly cut by the US Space Agency.


The feed was uploaded to YouTube and has seen over 400,000 viewers so far with many using the footage as conclusive proof that alien craft are busy flying around the planet.  And while the blurry images aren’t definitive proof of anything, the coincidental timing of the cutting of the feed by NASA does raise a few question.  If there was nothing to see, why was the feed cut?

There has been no official comment from NASA on the footage but the message that was put into the cut feed read ‘Please stand by.  The High definition Earth Viewing experiment is either switching cameras or we are experiencing a temporary loss of signal with the International Space Station’.

Previous sightings

Nor is this the first time that the feed has mysteriously vanished around the time something unexplained appeared in the sky.  In January this year according to a report in the Daily Mail, a UFO watcher named Toby Lundh saw a UFO on the live feed from the space station, only for it to abruptly go blank for 10-15 seconds and reappear with nothing in sight.  Mr Lundh said it wasn’t the first time he had seen something on the feed only for the feed to cut out and it seems to be a normal reaction in NASA when the unexpected rears its head.

Of course, what was seen could have been a simple piece of debris or even some strange reflection from the moon.  However, by coinciding it with a cutout of the feed, NASA actually end up highlighting the event.  Nor did they comment on the January sighting to identify what the object in the images were – which again might have quelled suspicions as they doubtless have access to higher resolution feeds than those shown to casual observers.

So the question isn’t so much why are UFO’s flying around in the upper atmosphere as why does NASA seem determined to highlight them in some strange way?
