Mysterious flashes of light above Earth captured by NASA satellite and ISS live feed camera

Parked in space a million miles from Earth, the Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) onboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) captured hundreds of flashes of light in Earth’s upper atmosphere.

Flashed of light captured by the Deep Space Climate Observatory.

In the 1990s astronomer Carl Sagan already reported this bizarre phenomenon which he noticed in images from the Galileo spacecraft.

These flashes of light not only appeared over oceans but over land as well and while scientists at first suggested that the lights seen over the ocean may be the reflection of sunlight off a part of the ocean the same couldn’t be said for the flashes seen over land.

After studying this phenomenon the scientists concluded that the source of the flashes is not on Earth’s surface but cirrus clouds up to five to eight kilometers high in the atmosphere where these flashes were seen whereby the cause of the flashes of light are most likely solar reflection off of horizontally ice particles, reports dailymail.

These kind of flashes of light are not only captured by the Deep Space Climate Observatory, parked in space a million miles from Earth but it seems the camera onboard the International Space Station which orbit the Earth at an altitude of between 330 and 435 km apparently also has the ability to capture the strange flashes of light above Earth.

Streetcap1, who caught similar flashes of light on the ISS live feed on May 10, 2017, said: “What are these weird light ripple effect above Earth.”

Solar reflection off of horizontally ice particles again or is it a phenomenon that cannot be explained?

NASA tracks cone-shaped UFO before it disappears into deep space

The ISS live feed cam captures a cone-shaped metallic object for about 22 minutes before it moves upwards and disappears into deep space.


The stunning footage, recorded on February 21, 2020, has led to many speculations about what the object could be.

While many people suggest that it is a real UFO, whether alien or a man-made spacecraft belonging to the space fleet, others say that the cone-shaped object is a satellite or a probe intended for experimental purposes in deep space, released by the ISS.

A spinning unidentified flying object crosses the moon before it disappears into deep space.


Notice the ring of energy when it crosses the dark side of moon.

The UFO was observed on 01.02.2020 and captured with a Camera Nikon p900, 30fps, exposure compensation.

Mystery crafts in wing formation moving at hypersonic speed though space

There has been a lot of activity in space lately, now on February 23, 2020, Wilbur Allen captured several rectangular shaped UFOs in wing formation flying at high speed through space.


It is always the question whether these UFOs are man-made or extraterrestrial. Whatever these are, they're large!

What are these "ghost' UFOs orbiting Earth?

In my latest post from February 26, 2020, I wrote about the several rectangular shaped UFOs in wing formation flying at high speed through space and wondered whether these UFOs are man-made or extraterrestrial.


Now again such a mysterious craft has been captured on February 25, 2020 while another footage from November last year shows similar crafts flying in formation at an incredible speed through space.

I have no explanation for these strange objects, but perhaps someone can provide more clarity about these 'ghosts' UFOs.
