A man was left puzzled after seeing what he believed to be a black sphere with “static movement” hovering in space during a live feed from the International Space Station (ISS).
Jeff noticed the strange movement when he was watching the live feed on YouTube on October 11.
During the footage, the ISS is located approximately just south of Australia when a black object appears up close to the camera.
The sphere-shaped unidentified object is seen moving up and down and across the screen.
YouTube conspiracist MrMBB333 re-shared the video to his channel and commented that the sphere is almost “scanning” on the ISS.
He also suggested that the sphere had a static energy field around its body.
The so-called Earth watchman said: “It almost looks like it is scanning the International Space Station, or it is looking potentially in this direction.
“It almost looks like it has a static field around it, the static around the darker centre.
“It’s like a black ball of energy. The area back there looks like a fan or a wing, I’m not saying that’s what it is but you can see movement like static back here. Could be a digital artefact, I don’t know.”
Some viewers believed the footage showed evidence of a magnetic field disruption but others said the black sphere could be a weather balloon or even a grit on camera.
One wrote: “Every decent UFO footage I have seen appears to have the same disruption of space around it, almost the same way heat from exhaust blurs everything in the background.
“But this appears to be more of a magnetic field disruption.”
Another claimed: “Must be a weather balloon drifting by the space station. Or maybe swamp gas.”
“I think it’s grit on the window, someone is moving the camera in the ISS footage,” a third wrote. “You see the barrier beneath the window and the grit spot move in relation to it, it’s grit.”
