An increasing number of videos and stills showing unknown objects around the ISS have appeared on-line.
So many videos have appeared on Youtube in fact that the process of spotting unidentified extras in pictures and footage of the International Space Station seems to have become a pastime in itself. The trouble is, most of these turn out to be nothing more than pieces of space debris, meteors, light reflections and other innocuous things. It is all too easy to see things flying past or floating around in footage taken from orbit.
"It's good to keep scanning space videos for possible anomalies and reporting them quickly," said former NASA engineer James Oberg. "The reason is, there is always a real chance that it could be a genuine anomaly, either a spacecraft malfunction or other threat, expected or unexpected. In the past, missions have failed because a clue that should have been seen out the window was overlooked."
"As 2012 ended and 2013 began, numerous UFOs were reported around the country -- nothing earthshattering there -- but what about alleged unidentified objects seen in space near the International Space Station (or ISS), a couple of hundred miles above Earth?."
