UFO conspiracy theorists allege the US space agency shut down a live stream video recording from the ISS, which is 250 miles above Earth, moments after the unidentified flying object was spotted.
In a video, uploaded to YouTube by prolific UFO chaser Streetcap1, a strange white light is seen with a glow around it appearing over the Earth’s surface.
The footage then cuts to a blue screen, and it is seen no more.
Streetcap1 said: “NASA cut the camera feed so quickly even though this was very distant, but I still managed to get a couple of frames to enlarge.
“Who else is feeling that NASA and certain governments are getting prepared for something big?”
Glowing images such as this have been caught before by the ISS cameras that have later proved to be lens flares, which occurs when light refracts inside the lens and then appears on the image, or reflections of the ISS itself.
However, Streetcap1 tried to dismiss a lens flare as a possible cause of the latest anomoly.
Describing the object, he said: “Unidentified object is brighter on the left side due to the light from the sun – so not lens flare.”
Scott Waring, editor of UFO Sightings Daily, who uploaded the footage, said: “It appears far away but it’s not.
“It’s actually very close to the space station, but higher up so it appears distant. Excellent find.”
Some viewers of the video believe the alleged cut to the space station’s live stream is further proof NASA is trying to cover-up the existence of aliens.
Eric de Perik said: “NASA is looking more foolish by the day.”
Another user by the name of Rob, added: “Good old NASA covering up.”
One viewer, Jen Grindle, believes she captured further proof something other wordly was happening with footage of an alleged UFO over Murrieta in California, USA, at the same time as Streetcap1’s space station live stream recording.
She said: “I believe I caught this as it entered into our atmosphere this evening.
“I looked up at the time and it was 10.23 PSD.
“I saw something slowly falling from the sky, and it was moving west and lower at the same time.”
However, others were more sceptical.
One viewer, Paul, said: “Another one of those ‘unexplained’ footage videos, and, just like all of the others, it’s out of focus.
“It’s a UFO because it’s out of focus!”
The latest capture comes despite UFO buffs fearing they were going to lose the livestream footage completely as part of the “NASA cover up”.
NASA announced in July it was changing what was released online from the recordings.
It initially said only select pieces of footage would be shown online, prompting one UFO enthusiast to say: “This only proves NASA is trying to hide something from us.”
But, clarifying NASA’s original statement, a spokesman said: “These change will not affect live video streams from the International Space Station.
“Viewers can continue to see live video as long as the ISS has signal.”
The space agency also insists no UFOs have ever been recorded, and the anomalies are lens flares or reflections.
It says the camera goes to a blue screen, only when there is a loss of signal.
