Strange Object Seen From ISS Before NASA Shuts Down Video

Fans of NASA’s live video feed from the International Space Station finally had something interesting to look at recently … for a while. On August 4th, August 7th and August 12th, watchers spotted strange glowing objects in the camera’s field of vision. What’s even more sinister interesting, the video feed on the 4th cut out shortly after the object appeared and, when the feed returned, the object was gone.

The Houston Chronicle, the newspaper closest to the Johnson Space Center, reports that blogger and UFO researcher Scott Waring of UFO Sightings Daily saw what he described as a "glowing disk" August 4th and posted this observation:

I took a screenshot of the UFO and enlarged it. It has a long line down its middle and a dome on its top, but is rectangle (sic) on its lower bottom.

So far, NASA has made no comment about either the unidentified object or why the video feed on the 4th cut out.

On August 7, this image was spotted and posted by a self-described Ufologist who goes by the pseudonym Streecap1. Waring thinks the glowing object appears to be a five-point UFO.

Can you see five points on this object?

On August 12th, Streetcap1 observed this string of four lights.

Again, no comments have been made by NASA about any of these observations. The usual explanation is vented gas or debris from the ISS. If that’s the case, why cut the video and why not give the reason immediately?

So, what do the videos and pictures look like to you?
