... they would have to be doing thousands of miles an hour.
Prolific YouTube UFO hunter Streetcap1, has spotted on the live video feed of the International Space Station (ISS) two UFO light orbs flying below the ISS in orbit.
Streetcap1 estimated that the two orbs must have been flying at a speed of thousands of miles per hour because they appeared to overtake the ISS.
The footage below shows the orbs moving across the screen apparently in the same direction as the ISS and out of the field of view of the camera mounted on the orbiting station, implying that the orbs were moving faster than the space station.
“Thought it was maybe two Jets at first, but they would have to be doing thousands of miles an hour. They eventually disappear at the right hand side of the screen as the camera cannot keep up with them.”
The International Space Station travels in orbit around the Earth at an average speed of about 17,200 miles per hour (27,700 km/h) and completes about 15.5 orbits a day, implying that the orbs were travelling much faster than 17,000 miles per hour, as Scott Waring, editor of UFO Sightings Daily notes.
Judging from the constant relative orientation as they move across the screen, the two orbs could actually be lights of a single UFO.
The latest sighting by Streetcap1 comes only about three weeks after the Internet went gaga over footage shot from the ISS showing three UFOs apparently flying out of the Earth’s atmosphere. But only after about a few seconds into the footage NASA cut the live feed due to an alleged “loss of signal.”
