article imageUFO mothership stalks International Space Station?

UFO hunters say that the International Space Station (ISS) is under surveillance by a "UFO mothership." They allege they have observed in recent footage from ISS's live camera, a giant UFO mothership hovering close to the space station.
Digital Journal reports recent claims of UFO sightings in images sent to Earth by NASA's Curiosity rover exploring the planet Mars. But now we also have reports of UFO sightings from the International Space Station (ISS). According to UFO enthusiasts, a huge mothership in the process of ejecting smaller crafts was seen on NASA's ISS live camera feed.
According to, on September 11, a YouTube user, danielofdoriaa, posted footage from the ISS's live camera feed, with the explanation that the streak of light visible in the footage is an "amazing UFO mothership letting out an orb fleet on ISS live feed" (see YouTube footage above).
The Huffington Post also reports that on September 13, myunhauzen74, another UFO hunter, claimed that the ISS camera caught another UFO that appeared as a bright pulsating object.
According to the Examiner, UFO hunters have accused NASA of covering up evidence of the UFO seen hovering close to ISS on September 11, by switching cameras in their live streaming feed. According to danielofdoriaa, NASA officials simply switched to a different camera angle without offering explanations.
The video above shows what UFO hunters say is a mothership discharging smaller crafts.
The Huffington Post reports that a well known "Ufologist," Marc D'Antonio, chief photo and video analyst for Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), and who works for a company based in Connecticut that specializes in special effects, says the white lights in the footage are only reflections off the window of the ISS. According to, D'Antonio explained:
"Basically when you're looking at any object, if there's a window between you and the object, the window is always suspect. Your first move in trying to identify the object is to try to eliminate that it's a reflection." reports D'Antonio studied several similar photos and videos and concluded that what looks like a UFO is actually a light reflection.
The Huffington Post reports D'Antonio said: "I examined the video and believe that this is, unfortunately, another case of mistaken identity."
He said: "The object seen outside the window isn't outside the window at all. In looking at the object closely, it is clearly in far less focus than the other items outside. Earth, seen going by below and importantly, in the distance, is in focus, but the object is not. So, how could everything at maximum distance be in focus but the object -- also at supposed maximum distance as far as the camera is concerned -- not be in focus? It is because the object is not out there at all, but on the window."
He concluded: "I believe this is simply a reflection on the window from inside."
D'Antonio said he is a member of MUFON becaue he believes in the possibility that UFOs have visited the Earth. But he said: "I think it's important to go through these, and to put aside the ones that we can say are very highly likely not the real thing. We need to let ET create the real thing for us. I'm not a debunker, I'm just very hard on the data."
The Examiner notes rightly that in the past, NASA tried to explain such alleged UFO sightings, but in recent times they have stopped reacting to the allegations.
For UFO believers, NASA's silence is evidence the agency is trying to cover up the "truth." However, skeptics will think NASA scientists have stopped reacting to these allegations simply because they are weary of having to react to all the baseless claims.
