US SPACE agency NASA has been forced from its usually tight-lipped stance on alien visitations after video allegedly showing several UFOs passing a window behind an astronaut on the International Space Station (ISS) emerged.
It has been criticised by debunkers for knowing misrepresenting anomalies in videos, something it denies.
He said: “Astronauts have not seen any evidence of alien life.
“Reports of unidentified flying objects in images returned from the shuttle or [space] station have turned out to be ice crystals, drifting orbital debris, lightning flashes, or meteors streaking through the dark atmosphere below.
“So far, our search for extraterrestrial life ― and other civilizations in space ― has turned up no proof of alien civilizations.”
Conspiracy theorists like Scott C Waring, who runs website ufosightingsdaily.com, claim that NASA and Mr Jones are just part of the “cover-up” and he dismisses their explanations, convinced that every bright light or blurred object seen on camera in the distance from the ISS is an alien space craft.
But, Scott Brando, who forenisically examines alleged UFO pictures and videos, before releasing debunking articles on his website ufoofinterest.org is more level headed.
He told Express.co.uk that the UFOs caught on camera were either lens reflections or ice particles.
In the case of the latest footage, he said they were ice particles.
He tweeted: “According to SecureTeam10 this object is a #UFO outside #ISS window.
“Watch how many small ice debris cross the camera in other videos.”
