US SPACE agency NASA has been forced from its usually tight-lipped stance on alien visitations after video allegedly showing several UFOs passing a window behind an astronaut on the International Space Station (ISS) emerged.
UFO hunters claimed the footage caught by cameras on board the ISS and released online by NASA was conclusive proof aliens exits.
The video, uploaded to several UFO websites, shows Samantha Cristoforetti, an Italian European Space Agency astronaut, demonstrating how to operate window shutters at the ISS.
But as she talks to the camera, several white objects appear to come shooting into view.
Tyler Glockner posted the footage, uploaded on March 18, 2017, to his UFO sightings YouTube channel Secure Team.
He described one of the unknown objects seen hurtling past the ISS as a “smoking gun UFO”.
Secureteam10 describes itself as an “underground” research team that exposes the truth about extraterrestrial and UFO coverups.
It has been criticised by debunkers for knowing misrepresenting anomalies in videos, something it denies.

NASA, which says it has found no evidence yet of alien life during any of its missions, usually does not respond to such claims. This is possibly because so many are made.
But, following the latest claims, the agency issued a statement.
It said: “No unidentified objects in the popular sense have been seen from the International Space Station.
“Reflections from station windows, the spacecraft structure itself or lights from Earth commonly appear as artifacts in photos and videos from the orbiting laboratory.”
Last year veteran American astronaut Tom Jones also dispelled the myth.
