UFO Sightings 2016 Latest News & Updates: Conspiracy Theorists Convinced Aliens Entered Earth’s Atmosphere On July 9 Amid NASA’s Denial? ISS Live Stream Feed Cut Ignites UFO Sighting Speculations
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is no strangers to accusations that the agency is hiding evidence about UFO sightings or alien existence from the public. As a matter of fact, the agency is currently facing a new set of accusations after a live video feed from the International Space Station (ISS) was cut off earlier this month.
What really ignited the UFO sighting speculation, however, was the footage that showed a peculiar unidentified flying object entering the Earth's atmosphere. According to Sputnik International, the said video was uploaded on YouTube on Jul. 9 and has since gone viral with more than 2.3 million views.
NASA Denies Concealing Evidence Of Alien Life Existence
Due to the emergence of the alleged UFO sighting video, several extraterrestrial conspiracy theorists claimed that NASA is "intentionally concealing" something from the public, noting the extremely low quality of space footages. But as per NASA's explanation, the video feed in question was a "High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV)" experiment that can lose signal occasionally in spite of the fact that it's "fully automated and can't be turned off at a request."
"We used a space-based data relay network," the agency explained. "It gives us a very good coverage area, but you do lose signal occasionally - anywhere from a couple of seconds to a couple of minutes. It varies from day to day."
With the advancement and quantity of cameras, however, conspiracy theorists pointed out that space videos should have been of high quality and not the other way around. But NASA stressed that the agency did not cut off the supposed UFO sighting video to hide evidence of alien life existence, instead the signal of the camera was "simply interrupted."

No UFO Sighting On ISS Live Video Feed
UFO hunters and conspiracy theorists surely went a bit crazy speculating that the bizarre and blurry object seen in the ISS live video feed approaching the Earth was indeed a UFO sighting proof. However, some reports suggested that the object may be Chinese space station Tiangong-1 that was launched in 2011 but a NASA spokesperson it may be some space debris.
"It's very common for things like the moon, space debris, reflections from station windows, the spacecraft structure itself or lights from Earth to appear as artifacts in photos and videos from the orbiting laboratory," NASA spokesman Daniel Huot said, The Daily Galaxy quotes.
Meanwhile, this was not the first time that NASA denied a UFO sighting through the live ISS feed video. In fact, the agency also denied the accusations that it intentionally cut off the live ISS video stream following the appearance of a "horseshoe-shaped" UFO (as seen on a YouTube clip) in April, Inquisitr notes.
In other extraterrestrial sighting-related news, a former British soldier has sensationally claimed that aliens do exist after he was abducted by them. Based on the report of Daily Express, 66-year-old Bill Brooks detailed his alleged abduction by the aliens as well as being subjected to mind control experiment in a new book titled, "44."
