A mysterious object has been spotted hurtling past a SpaceX craft in what has been described as the best sighting of the year.
The baffling footage was taken as the Dragon capsule reached the International Space Station to deliver cargo on December 6.
In the clip, an unusual “metallic” object can be seen moving up the camera screen before disappearing behind the craft.
Blake Cousins, who runs the channel, told Daily Star that the object seemed to have “three thrusters on the back” but didn’t resemble any kind of aircraft on Earth.
“Some people speculated, as I did, that this could be some sort of secret asset in the Space Force yet to be revealed to the public,” he suggested.
Conspiracists have often claimed strange sightings in the skies could actually be top-secret aircraft developed by the Space Force, which have yet to be made public.
The clip has been seen more than 45,000 times and plenty of viewers dismissed the sight as nothing more than space debris or satellites. But Blake disagrees.
“Some people might speculate that this is space debris but it’s way too close to the ISS and too large,” he continued. “If this was space debris, the ISS would be in jeopardy of a collision that would be catastrophic.
“Other people might say this is a satellite but satellites do not resemble anything like this and, again to have it so close to the ISS is dangerous.
“It’s something, it’s something that can’t be explained. And, in my opinion, it could be something otherworldly as well.
“This sighting, in my opinion, is possibly the best UFO sighting with regards to an ISS encounter with a UFO for the year 2020.”
Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites may also lead to an explosion in sightings next year, Blake believes.
“I also believe that in 2021 there will be a pick-up in UFO sightings due to the fact Elon Musk has HD 4K cameras aboard the SpaceX,” he added.
“And they’re going to be taken aboard the ISS. Back in the day when you were looking at all these photos from space, it was taken on a ‘potato’.
“But now with the advent of HD 4K technology, we’re going to be seeing clear video and photographs of these anomalous objects surrounding the ISS.
“2021 will be a huge year for UFO sightings.”
