Several Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) were reportedly spotted in the sky near NASA's International Space Station (ISS). 

UFO Sightings Reported Near International Space Station

Videos of the UFOs appearing at different times were recorded and uploaded by YouTube user 'Streetcap1'. The videos also included photographs of the disc-shaped UFOs taken by the NASA camera. In some videos the objects sighted were moving fast in a direction, while other footage showed the mysterious celestial objects moving in slow motion.

"Spacecraft-generated 'dandruff' has been seen since the very first human spaceflights, when the non-intuitive relative motions and impossible-to-judge distances in the earthly environment of outer space tricked observers into misinterpreting visual stimuli," said James Oberg, a former space engineer specialized in NASA space shuttle operations, Huffington Post reported.

Oberg insisted that the people should keep monitoring the camera feeds that capture sightings of celestial objects in order to prevent technical problems which could occur at the International Space Station.

"It shouldn't be surprising that only half centuries later, most folks watching YouTube videos are still totally flummoxed by what they understandably and excusably can't comprehend," said Oberg.

"The reason is, there is always a real chance that it could be a genuine anomaly, either a spacecraft malfunction or other threat, expected or unexpected. In the past, missions have failed because a clue that should have been seen out the window was overlooked."
