Space veteran Leroy Chiao has recently opened up about an unusual sighting he had in space in 2005.
The pioneering astronaut had been the commander of the International Space Station during his stay there between October 2004 and April 2005. The UFO experience in question took place during a space walk with Russian cosmonaut Salizhan Sharipov.

I believe the most compelling UFO sightings admitted publically by any astronaut were those by Gordon Cooper. He was one who admitted sighting foo fighters as well (pre-Roswell) but his admission of one landing and being filmed must be the best of all
Meteors can light up at speed as they enter the atmosphere, and often as they break up they can cause several glowing lights to appear. Could it be that he saw this but from the unique and rarely ever seen viewpoint of above them looking down towards earth, rather than the usual below, looking up into the sky?
That's a nice story of a personal experience, it makes you consider. After all it comes from a astronaut on a space-walk, whatever it truly was. Rows of light in the sky have been reported here on Earth many times, could be a coincidence, a natural phenomenon (meteroite) or not. There is no way for us to validate or refute it as it stands right now.

Yay! My favorite kind sighting that proves a lot, the anecdote.
Surely you didn't expect that he could bring these UFOs back home?
