On September 19, SpaceX announced the successful completion of the first-ever Inspiration 4 space mission. Tourists set off on a three-day expedition into space without the professional crew on board, and it turned out that it was a good thing, since non-professionals started downloading videos from Earth’s orbit without bothering to edit the “anomalies” that fell there.
They flew into space (ticket price about 200 million dollars) – Jared Isaacman, billionaire (the businessman recruited three people in his team, whom he did not know before), the assistant doctor Hayley Arseno, data engineer Chris Sembroski and professor Sian Proctor.
It was Chris Sembroski who posted on his Twitter account on September 25 a short video made in Earth orbit. He accompanied it with the inscription, – “The sun is reflected on the earth, then comes out of the dome”.
But attentive viewers noticed not only the shadow of the Sun, but also a UFO flying in the frame following a very unusual trajectory, which excludes that it is space debris or a satellite.
This UFO generally behaved similarly to UFOs that have recently been observed in Earth’s skies – changing shape and looking like living creatures made of liquid metal.
We want to remind readers that this phenomenon occurs in the upper layers of the Earth’s atmosphere, where there are no birds or insects.
The Dragon spacecraft lifted the astronauts to an altitude of 590 km. It is about 160 km above the orbit of the International Space Station.
Interestingly, after spotting the UFO and asking in the comments what this spiral anomaly visible in space is, Chris quickly deleted his tweet.
