Outer space is a strange place. But it’s in our human nature to travel to the stars and explore the cosmos. And while we are still in its infancy, we have made considerable progress over the past decades. Space exploration brings its share of rewards. But it also comes with a good dose of mystery. During their exploration of space, human astronauts encountered some rather strange things that remain unexplained to this day.
The triangles of STS-115
An example is the mysterious UFOs that the crew of the STS-115 mission saw in space. In fact, it’s one of the most mysterious sightings in the history of the Space Shuttle program. The surprise of the astronauts and the mission control center was such that Houston took control of the shuttle’s remote camera to try to see the mysterious objects. The objects, at one point, even formed a triangular formation, leaving the astronauts stunned. NASA’s explanation was that the objects were space junk. But not everyone was convinced. Mission STS-115 also photographed this strange object in space, and it almost looks like a ghost orbiting the planet.
The X in the sky
Over a decade ago, astronomers spotted a mysterious object speeding through the solar system. NASA heard about it and pointed its Hubble Space Telescope for a closer look. Photographs of the object have left experts dumbfounded. Hubble had observed a mysterious X-shaped object speeding through the solar system. And it was nothing like anything scientists had ever seen.
