Strange footage has emerged of bright lights flashing on the International Space Station's live feed, with conspiracy theorists claiming it is 'an uncloaking UFO'.

The live feed caught the attention of UFO hunters after it appeared to be flashing near the ISS.

The conspiracy theorists who posted the video say whatever it is, it must be 'huge' as it was going under the ISS at some distance.

Other UFO hunters have claimed the mammoth alien craft could be 900 feet (300 metres) in diameter and fly from the Earth to the moon in less than a minute.

However, experts have debunked the claim, and say the lights are simply reflections or lens flare from the camera.



The video was posted by Belgium-based YouTube channel UFO Today and shows a live broadcast of the spaceship on the 14th April 2018.

'We can see the international space station orbiting earth when suddenly a UFO seems to be uncloaking nearby the international space station', according to UFO Today.

The UFO hunters claimed that the Earth's magnetic field was interfering with the UFO as it revealed itself, causing the lights to flash.

'It looks like the effect we see when a piece of aluminium is put inside a microwave.

'Whatever this object was, it must have been huge since it was going under the international space station at some distance', the user posted with the live feed.

Another prominent UFO hunter Scott C Waring had his own theory about the footage.

He said it was not six separate UFOs but one large one that could be as large as 900 feet (300 metres) in diameter.

'This UFO is going to blow your mind! I mean it just shows up as a single glowing orb', he wrote on his website UFO sightings daily.

WHAT MAKES SOMEONE BELIEVE IN CONSPIRACY THEORIES?

Over the course of three online-based studies, researchers at the University of Kent showed strong links between the belief in conspiracy theories and certain psychological traits.

Narcissism and self-esteem levels have a large impact on a persons belief in conspiracy theories.

The results showed that people who rated highly on the narcissism scale and who had low self-esteem were more likely to be conspiracy believers.

However, while low self-esteem, narcissism and belief in conspiracies are strongly linked, it is not clear that one - or a combination - causes the other.

But it hints at an interesting new angle to the world of conspiracy and those who reinforce belief.

There are widely believed to be three main reasons as to why people believe in conspiracy theories.
  • The desire for understanding and certainty - Seeking explanations for events is a natural human desire.
  • The desire for control and security - Conspiracy theories can give their believers a sense of control and security.
  • The desire to maintain a positive self-image - People who feel socially marginalised are more likely to believe in conspiracy theories and it gives them a sense of worth in the UFO community.
These three things tie in with the previously stated qualities and combine to create an avid conspiracy theorist.
'Then it divides into about 4-6 flashing orbs! During this time the UFO is revealed partially, meaning its not 6 UFOs, but one large UFO of about 300 meters diameter', he said.

'Such a craft has the capability to fly from Earth to the moon in under a minute. Its not light speed, but its fast', he said.

However, Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual, said there was a simple explanation for these baffling lights.

'Often the images shown to be of UFOs near the ISS are reflections or lens flare from the camera', he told MailOnline.

He said the flashing lights in this clip were probably just a piece of space junk or a satellite in the distance.

'Usually people who post videos like this are more concerned about adding music to the soundtrack and putting ridiculous ideas about UFOs uncloaking themselves like a spaceship in Star Trek', he said.

The footage is the latest in a series of bizarre claims as conspiracy theorists monitor the live feed on the ISS for any anomalies.

In January, a bizarre YouTube video that some claimed reveals a ‘golden UFO’ soaring over Earth sparked fresh speculation among conspiracy theorists about an alien cover-up.

The video focuses on a 2016 clip from the International Space Station’s live feed, showing a slow-moving view over our planet – and, a mysterious glow can be seen emanating from the bottom right corner.

Just seconds later, the footage cuts out to reveal a standby message from the ISS, causing many to claim NASA was attempting to hide an object the YouTubers estimate to be ‘hundreds of miles long.’
WHAT ARE THE KEY DISCOVERIES HUMANITY HAS MADE IN ITS SEARCH FOR ALIEN LIFE?

Discovery of pulsars

British astronomer Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell was the first person to discover a pulsar in 1967 when she spotted a radio pulsar.

Since then other types of pulsars that emit x-rays and gamma rays have also been spotted.

Pulsars are essentially rotating, highly magnatised neutron stars but when they were first discovered it was believed they could come from aliens.

'Wow!' radio signal

In 1977, an astronomer looking for alien life in the nigh sky above Ohio spotted a powerful radio signal so strong that he excitedly wrote 'Wow!' next to his data.

The 72-second blast, spotted by Dr Jerry Ehman through a radio telescope, came from Sagittarius but matched no known celestial object.

Conspiracy theorists have since claimed that the 'Wow! signal', which was 30 times stronger than background radiation, was a message from intelligent extraterrestrials.

Fossilised martian microbes

In 1996 Nasa and the White House made the explosive announcement that the rock contained traces of Martian bugs.

The meteorite, catalogued as Allen Hills (ALH) 84001, crashed onto the frozen wastes of Antarctica 13,000 years ago and was recovered in 1984.

Photographs were released showing elongated segmented objects that appeared strikingly lifelike.

However, the excitement did not last long. Other scientists questioned whether the meteorite samples were contaminated.

They also argued that heat generated when the rock was blasted into space may have created mineral structures that could be mistaken for microfossils.

Behaviour of Tabby's Star in 2005

The star, otherwise known as KIC 8462852, is located 1,400 light years away and has baffled astonomers since being discovered in 2015.

It dims at a much faster rate than other stars, which some experts have suggested is a sign of aliens harnessing the energy of a star.

Recent studies have 'eliminated the possibility of an alien megastructure', and instead, suggests that a ring of dust could be causing the strange signals.

Exoplanets in the Goldilocks zone in 2015

In February this year astronomers announced they had spotted a star system with planets that could support life just 39 light years away.

Seven Earth-like planets were discovered orbiting nearby dwarf star 'Trappist-1', and all of them could have water at their surface, one of the key components of life.

Three of the planets have such good conditions, that scientists say life may have already evolved on them.

Researchers claim that they will know whether or not there is life on any of the planets within a decade, and said 'this is just the beginning.'
