NASA cameras have captured three strange objects from a space station – and the agency is unable to explain what they are.
The images on NASA website Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth have re-emerged after being shared to YouTube by controversial conspiracy theorist Scott C Waring.
In one picture from 1985, a snake-like shape like many that have been seen from Earth, floats in the dark background of space.
A second picture from the same year shows an object that bizarrely mimics a screw.
And a third – taken in 1990 – shows a grid-like object hovering above the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Brazil.
Mysteriously, all the images were classed as “unknown objects” by the space agency – apparently going against commonly-held believes such structures are simply space waste.
Scott – who has gained a reputation in the past for his outlandish claims of spotting badgers on Mars – noticed the baffling sights and shared it to his YouTube channel ET Database yesterday.
He was most fascinated by the snake-like UFO, which he suggested could be “alive”.
“It looks like it’s floating around space like an actual animal,” he said.
The conspiracy theorist went on to point out a conversation he had with an astronaut earlier in the year, who said he saw something “that looked like a semi-transparent living creature” outside the ISS.
Hundreds of people have seen the clip since it was posted yesterday.
One wrote: “I was assuming it was a piece of solar panel from a satellite, but if that were the case, it would be burning up as it’s falling back down to Earth.
“Same with last one…Very strange! Great job as always.”
Another admitted they were “very intrigued” by the images.
But a third was more sceptical, suggesting it was nothing but “space debris”.
It is not the first time strange sights have been spotted in space.
A group of NASA astronauts on the ISS were “ watched by a Space Force craft ” during a walk outside the station, conspiracy theorists claimed.
And some claimed an unusual cloud formation over Earth was caused by “soundwaves from a mystery spacecraft”.
