Astronaut talks about his UFO sightings during a spacewalk
Astronaut Leroy Chiao and cosmonaut Salizhan Sharipov did a spacewalk while installing navigation antennas. Chiao was a commander of the International Space Station in 2005 for 6 and a half months. Chiao and Sharipov were 230 miles above Earth, traveling at over 17,000 MPH, when some mysterious lights caught Chiao’s attention.
He said the lights appeared to be in a line, almost like a check mark upside down. He recalled that the lights fly by and this was so strange for him. However, his fellow spacewalker didn’t saw the mysterious line of lights as he was facing the opposite direction.
This experience is one of the highlights in NASA’s Unexplained Files of “Are We Alone,” a television week-long special series of Science Channel starting March 2, 2014.
A humble explanation provided to Chiao’s reported sighting involves a fishing boat in which its bright lights were spotted by Chiao hundreds of miles below him. But many people are not satisfied with the explanation and believe that there are more possible interpretations of what the astronaut observed.
