A batch of raw footage from decades-old NASA missions shows zipping lights and strange objects in the sky.
Recently posted on YouTube, the clips are renewing UFO conspiracy theories that the government is hiding knowledge about its interactions with intelligent life.
But two astronauts dispute that — and talk about NASA's supposed cover-up and what the clips really show.
The scenario goes like this: It's 1996; you're an astronaut and you're looking at a UFO. This is quite possibly the biggest, most game-changing scientific discovery in the history of mankind.
And here you are, gliding through space in low Earth orbit, watching this alien craft dance around your video camera's viewfinder. You are not alone — there are other astronauts onboard the space shuttle, and Mission Control is watching the live feed from Houston.
Yet not a single raised voice or mention of ETs or UFOs can be heard on the audio of this recording. Apparently, it's just another routine brush with extraterrestrial life, and another day in the life of a massive, decades-long, multi-agency cover-up.
