‘It’s actually really hard to describe.’ (Peake)

It’s footage that will shock scientists and divide stargazers, but could the first British man in space have stumbled across one of the greatest ever discoveries in the history of mankind?
In an announcement from the International Space Station (ISS), Major Tim Peake has revealed he glimpsed what appeared to be an alien craft while filming a time lapse of the Earth - a ritual made famous by NASA astronaut, Scott Kelly.
The grainy video footage shows a UFO flying randomly across the screen close to the ISS.
In February, Peake posted similar footage on Twitter showing how “lightning can strike our planet.”
(Editor's Note: As in almost all cases, NASA will remain silent on an explanation, or come up with something to explain away the footage.)
