Did A NASA Live Stream Capture A UFO Above The Earth’s Atmosphere?

The object came into view and the stream mysteriously cut off

Is the United States government covering up information about extraterrestrial life and UFOs? If Hillary Clinton is elected president, we may find out. In a radio interview last April she said, “I want to open the files as much as we can.” And when asked about UFOs she gave a surprisingly candid answer: “There’s enough stories out there that I don’t think everybody is just sitting in their kitchen making them up.” If Mrs. Clinton is elected president, there’s a new video going around that UFO enthusiasts should press her to force NASA to come clean about.


Earlier this month, a live-streaming video from the International Space Station captured a UFO just outside of Earth’s atmosphere. As soon as the object came into view, the video mysteriously cut off. Was it space junk? Tiangong-1, the lost Chinese space station? An alien space craft? The video’s poster, Street Cap1, thinks it may be a meteor, but isn’t sure. “Remember a ufo is an unidentified flying object,” he wrote on his post. “This could well be a meteor or the like. What made it interesting was the camera cut off when the ufo seemed to stop.”

Tabatha Thompson, a NASA spokesperson, released a statement saying that NASA technicians do not shut down the live stream when UFOs appear. “The station regularly passes out of range of the Tracking and Relay Data Satellites (TDRS) used to send and receive video, voice and telemetry from the station,” she told Valuewalk. NASA added to their cover up story telling UK’s Mail Online that the object may have been a reflection. “Reflections from station windows, the spacecraft structure itself or lights from Earth commonly appear as artefacts in photos and videos from the orbiting laboratory,” a spokesperson said.

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

Childbirth is the number one reason American women visit the hospital, and it ain't cheap. In fact, it's getting more and more expensive. A new study published in Health Affairs found that the cost of having a baby with employer-sponsored health insurance increased by almost 50% in the past seven years.

The study evaluated "trends in cost-sharing for maternity care for women with employer-based health insurance plans, before and after the Affordable Care Act," which was signed into law in 2010. The study looked at over 657,061 women enrolled in large employer-sponsored health insurance plans who delivered babies between 2008 and 2015, as these plans tend to cover more than plans purchased by small businesses or individuals.

A meteorite crashed into Earth nearly 800,000 years ago. The meteor was 1.2 miles wide, and the impact was so big, it covered 10% of the planet with debris. However, scientists haven't been able to find the impact site for over a century. That is, until now. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal believes the crash site has been located.

Tektites, which are essentially rocks that have been liquefied from the heat of the impact and then cooled to form glass, help scientists spot the original impact site of a meteor. Upon impact, melted material is thrown into the atmosphere, then falls back to the ground. Even if the original crater has disappeared due to erosion or is hidden by a shift in tectonic plates, tektites give the spot away. Tektites between 750,000 to 35.5 million years old have been found in every continent except Antarctica.
