object is physically there...
The bright object appeared to keep pace with the International Space Station, which can travel up to 17,000mph. More than 40,000 people have seen the footage on YouTube.
A UFO has been spotted “chasing” the International Space Station, according to conspiracy theorists.
The object was initially spotted by Mary Hall, before it was shared to a wider audience by YouTuber MrMBB333 with the title: “Unknown high speed ‘craft’ caught chasing the ISS.”
It shows a white shape tumbling through space, apparently keeping up with the ISS.
The uploader said: “It kind of goes in a backwards motion, you can see it tumbling.
“This thing slows down and kind of goes to the left.
“You can see this object, whatever it is, tumbling in the sky apparently coming towards the International Space Station.
“The space station moves at roughly 17,000mph and this thing was gaining on the space station and then veered off to the left.
“Whatever it is, it’s very bright and appears to be tumbling.”
The video has been seen more than 47,000 times since being posted yesterday (November 14).
It split viewers, with many believing the conspiracy while others suggested slightly more plausible explanations.
“That’s crazy,” one said. “Whatever it is, that object is physically there. Notice that the moment it comes into view, it immediately captured the cameras focus.”
Another commented: “UFO chasing ISS; am I the only one that thinks the UFO is ‘tumbling" in exactly the opposite direction that it should be? That's ... mega-weird.
But one sceptic suggested that the way the object moves make it look more like “space debris just outside of Earth’s gravity”.
