Scott Kelly has been in space for 236 days as of Thursday and has become well known for his out-of-this-world photographs of the Earth during his stay on the International Space Station.
However, on Sunday and then again Thursday morning, Kelly shared photos that are of particular interest to those seeking to spot lifeforms off of the plant.
Sunday’s photo shows a stunning image of stars twinkling above India‘s brightly lit cities, but up in the top right corner, there is a small hint of something unusual. The same object can be seen more clearly in Thursday’s photo of a brilliantly bright sunrise coming over the Earth’s crest. Conspiracy theorists and alien obsessives are calling it a UFO.
In various YouTube videos, the theorists are claiming the proof is “clearly” visible in Kelly’s photo.
“In the upper right of the photo you can clearly see a large object with two lights on each end,” alien hunter Sonofmabarker wrote on his YouTube video. “It also appears to be very large and constructed.”
YouTube user and fellow extraterrestrial enthusiast secureteam10 says in his own video. “We see here what appears to be a long, white UFO. It looks to have two lights on it, one on each end.”
Others are contradicting the UFO theorists in saying that the object is merely a corner of Kelly’s window or a piece of the International Space State, which is in fact “very large and constructed.”
NASA hasn’t yet commented on either of the photos or the claims the theorists are making, but regardless, both of these images are breath-taking.
