(FOX 11) - Some conspiracy theorists are accusing NASA of cutting the International Space Station's (ISS) live feed to cover up an unknown object entering the Earth's atmosphere.
The object was captured on the ISS feed on July 9 and uploaded to YouTube by online UFO hunter Streetcap1.
"Remember a UFO is an unidentified flying object," Streetcap1 wrote in the video description. "This could well be a meteor or the like. What made it interesting was the camera cut off when the UFO seemed to stop."
As "mysterious" UFO enters atmosphere NASA cuts live feed. For those of us who don't have blinders on alien races are here in abundance.— Steve Kitcoff (@SoloVoc) July 13, 2016
Another UFO -- another feed cut --Another reason to question why NASA always has a problem with the neighbors... https://t.co/lsEf0mhPRN— Clyde Lewis (@ClydeLewis) July 13, 2016
Other enthusiasts have suggested the theory that it could be the Chinese space cargo ship Tiangong-1.
According to a spokesperson, NASA never intentionally shuts down live transmission to hide UFOs. Loss of video is usually due to loss of signals from the ISS, the Mirror reported.
