This was the out-of-this-world moment an unsuspecting fan spotted a UFO while watching the live feed – from the International Space Station.
Shocked Jadon Beeson, 20, was watching one of NASA’s out of space live streams on his phone.
After leaving for around an hour, he saw what he described as a Close Encounters-style spaceship on the footage.
He grabbed a screen shot and has sent the image to NASA and is still awaiting a response and explanation.
Jadon said: I was watching the live stream on my iPhone on Tuesday night and I popped away to see my neighbours and came back an hour later – I had left the stream on on my phone.
“I looked and realised there was a metal object above the earth. It had a blue glow to it and it stayed there for about two minutes.
“It was a metallic object, it looks like a Millennium Falcon from Star Wars or something from Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
“I thought it was all very strange.”
Jadon, of Stourport-on-Severn, Worcs, works in retail and says he has no idea what it really was and hopes experts can shed some light on it.
He said: “I took a picture of it and have contacted NASA, but I’ve heard nothing back yet.”
The NASA app allows people to watch live video from the International Space Station and includes internal views when the crew is on-duty and Earth views at other times.
The video is accompanied by audio of conversations between the crew and Mission Control.
