UFO hunters have raised the alarm about an alleged intrusion of Earth’s atmosphere by a massive UFO. The mysterious space object, according to UFO chasers, was spotted on the live ISS stream entering the Earth’s atmosphere on July 9, 2016.
The alleged intrusion was first reported by prolific UFO hunter Streetcap1 in a video uploaded online on July 9, 2016, the same day he spotted the mysterious object entering the Earth’s atmosphere.
According to Streetcap1 in the description of his video titled “UFO Enters Earth’s Atmosphere, July 9, 2016,” while it was possible that the object was a meteor, we may suspect it was an alien craft because NASA cut live transmission as it entered Earth’s atmosphere.
The UFO hunter wrote that the object may have been a meteor, but the suggestion appeared to be contradicted by his observation that it paused during entry into Earth’s atmosphere.
“Remember a UFO is an unidentified flying object,” Streetcap1 wrote. “This could well be a meteor or the like. What made it interesting was that the camera cut off when the UFO seemed to stop.”
Streetcap1’s observations sparked a debate among enthusiasts.
UFO Sightings Hotspot argued that although the object appears, at first glance, to be a natural space object, such as a meteor, a closer look could lead the observer to conclude it was an artificial space object, such as space junk or debris, making re-entry into the atmosphere from orbit.
“NASA seems to have a nasty habit of cutting off their live camera feeds every time a UFO enters the frame.”
But according to the blogger, the fact that NASA cut the live video raises suspicion.
“At first glance it could be a natural object like a meteor or an artificial object like space junk or a satellite but what made it interesting was that NASA cut the live camera feed just at the moment the UFO seemed to stop just above earth’s atmosphere,” the blogger wrote.
“If it [was a] recognizable and identified object then there is no reason to shut down the live streaming,” the UFO blogger continued, “but NASA seems to have a nasty habit of cutting off their live camera feeds every time a UFO enters the frame.”
UFO blogger Scott C. Waring also joined the debate. In a post to this UFO Sightings Daily blog, he ruled out the suggestion that the mysterious object was the Moon or a meteor.
Although he admitted the object could be a giant UFO, he argued, rather uncharacteristically, that it was more likely the Chinese space station Tiangong-1.
“I have watched the International Space Station a lot over the last 6 years and I can tell you that this is not the moon, nor a meteor,” he wrote. “It may be the Chinese space station cargo ship, called Tiangong-1, or the other one Tangong-2.”
Tiangong-1 is China’s first space station launched unmanned into orbit in September 2011. It serves primarily as an experimental module for testing and demonstrating space maneuvers and operations, such as docking.
The Chinese plan to replace it with Tiangong-2 in September 2016, according to Spaceflights News.
Tiangong-2 will allow China to place two astronauts in orbit for up to 30 days, Shanghai Daily reports.
This is not the first time that UFO hunters have accused NASA of cutting transmission after a mysterious UFO appeared on the live ISS stream.
A NASA spokesperson made a statement earlier in April denying allegations that NASA technicians deliberately shut down transmission when UFOs appear on the live video. According to the spokesperson, NASA never intentionally shuts down live transmission to hide UFOs. Loss of video is usually due to loss of signals from the ISS.
“The station [ISS] regularly passes out of range of the Tracking and Relay Data Satellites used to send and receive video, voice and telemetry from the station,” NASA spokesperson Tabatha Thompson said. “For video, whenever we lose signal video comes down on our higher bandwidth, called KU. The cameras will show a blue screen indicating no signal or a preset video slate, depending on where you are watching the feed.”
The statement was issued in response to media questions after Waring claimed in a blog post (see video above) that the agency cut live transmission following the appearance of a “diamond” or “horseshoe-shaped” UFO on the live feed.
