'There was a metal object above the earth': 'Millennium Falcon-like' UFO spotted in live NASA feed

An eagle-eyed space enthusiast in the UK has spotted what he believes could be a ‘metal spaceship’ in a live NASA feed from the International Space Station.

Jadon Beeson from Worcestershire was watching the live stream on his phone on Tuesday night when something strange caught his eye.

Hovering above earth, there appeared to be a bluish object.

"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,” he told the Mirror.

"It was a metallic object, it looks like a Millennium Falcon from Star Wars or something from Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” he said.

Hoping to get some answers, Mr Beeson took a screenshot and sent it to NASA but he had yet to get a response.

However, MailOnline reported it had received comment from the space agency confirming that no unidentifiable objects had been seen from the ISS.

“Reflections from station windows, the spacecraft structure itself or lights from Earth commonly appear as artefacts in photos and videos from the orbiting laboratory,” the NASA spokesperson said.

Here are a few other sightings further from the International Space Station.
