UFOs spotted near the International Space Station (VIDEO)

Since the beginning of 2013, numerous UFOs have been spotted in space near the International Space Station (ISS), a couple of hundred miles above Earth. Videos have appeared on YouTube showing images taken by NASA cameras of objects of different shapes, some moving very slowly, others rapidly hurtling through space.

YouTube user “Streetcap1” shared two videos in which unidentified silver objects were moving slowly near the curvature of the Earth, and two objects, one circular, the other disc-shape, were outside the ISS on New Year's Day.

James Oberg, a former space engineer who specialized in NASA space shuttle operations and is currently the NBC News Space Consultant, doesn't give much credence to any speculation that unidentified flying objects near the ISS originate from an alien civilization. He suggests that these objects could be “spacecraft-generated ‘dandruff’”.

“It shouldn’t be surprising that only half a century later, most folks watching YouTube videos are still totally flummoxed by what they understandably and excusably can’t comprehend,” Oberg said to the Huffington Post.

Even though Oberg wouldn’t necessarily say whether any of the unidentified objects spotted near the ISS are of alien origins, he does advocate that people keep scanning space videos in the case that it may help to identify possible anomalies like a malfunction that could then be properly reported or other threat, expected or unexpected.
