UFO with a ‘long metallic cylinder hull...

UFO hunters have dug up a year-old image to point out what they claim is a massive UFO orbiting a near-Earth asteroid – not a small moon, as Nasa has explained.

In a Gif released by the space agency on January 26, 2015, a spinning object can be seen at the centre of the black and white image, as a small, illuminated object descends toward it.

A year later, alien investigators are now saying this asteroid passed Earth late last month, and claim the image reveals a UFO with a ‘long metallic cylinder hull,’ and two smaller ones at the side.

This GIF from Nasa, posted in 2015, shows an asteroid and its small moon, according to the space agency. But, alien hunters have recently dug it back up, claiming that the object is actually a 70 meter metallic UFO with metal cylinders orbiting the asteroid.

WHAT NASA SAYS ABOUT THE 'UFO'

Nasa first posted the GIF on January 26, 2015.

In a post explaining the image, the space agency write that the large object is an asteroid called 2004 BL86, which is roughly 1,100 feet wide. Orbiting it, Nasa writes, is a small moon roughly 230 meters across.

Roughly 16 percent of near-Earth asteroids have an asteroid-moon, and some even have two. This asteroid won't pass by Earth so closely again for an estimated 200 years.

In the post on UFO Sightings Daily, Scott C. Waring discusses the alleged UFO that he claims is orbiting asteroid 2004 BL86. The asteroid is more than 1,000 feet wide and came within 745,000 miles of Earth.

Despite Nasa’s explanations, Waring writes that the object is not a moon but a metallic UFO more than 200 feet long.

‘Below, you see the close up view of the UFO that is orbiting asteroid 2004 BL86 right now. The UFO is 70 meters long,’ writes Waring.

‘They call the UFO a small moon, but it's not. ‘The UFO is spinning, which gives us a great view of it from different angles as you see below. It came 750,000 miles from Earth.’

While UFO hunters might not be satisfied with Nasa’s explanation of this sighting, they aren’t likely to get another close look at the phenomenon anytime soon; the near-Earth asteroid won’t be passing this closely to the home planet again for another 200 years.

‘[The images] show the primary body is approximately 1,100 feet (325 meters) across and has a small moon approximately 230 feet (70 meters) across,’ Nasa writes.

‘In the near-Earth population, about 16 percent of asteroids that are about 655 feet (200 meters) or larger are a binary (the primary asteroid with a smaller asteroid moon orbiting it) or even triple systems (two moons).

'The resolution on the radar images is 13 feet (4 meters) per pixel.

‘The trajectory of asteroid 2004 BL86 is well understood,’ Nasa writes.

The space agency says this object is the closest asteroid of its size to pass by Earth, and will likely remain so until asteroid 1999 AN10 makes its approach in 2027.

While UFO hunters might not be satisfied with Nasa’s explanation of this sighting, they aren’t likely to get another close look at the phenomenon anytime soon; the near-Earth asteroid won’t be passing this closely to the home planet again for another 200 years.
