Is this video finally proof of a UFO? Despite being nearly a year old, this astonishing footage captured by NASA is now being questioned for the second time as alien hunters believe they finally have proof of a government conspiracy.
The footage in question is of Asteroid 2004 BL86, a near-Earth asteroid that 'skimmed' our orbit at a distance of some 745,000 miles.
UFO Sightings Daily's Scott Waring has a very clear theory on what the object is that's orbiting the asteroid.
‘Below, you see the close up view of the UFO that is orbiting asteroid 2004 BL86 right now. The UFO is 70 meters long, they call the UFO a small moon, but its not."
"The UFO has a long metallic cylinder hull and two more smaller cylinder sections on opposite sides."
Waring's comments come despite the image having already been the cause of some confusion last year.
At the time alien hunters claimed that this was in fact definitive proof of a UFO, on account of the shape and appearance of the smaller object orbiting the asteroid.
They claimed that the UFO was simply hitching a ride on the asteroid by being in its orbit.
NASA did write a short piece summarising their findings on the asteroid saying that the small object was nothing more than a small moon.
"The images show the asteroid, which made its closest approach on Jan. 26, 2015 at 8:19 a.m. PST (11:19 a.m. EST) at a distance of about 745,000 miles (1.2 million kilometers, or 3.1 times the distance from Earth to the moon), has its own small moon."
According to NASA this is not uncommon, many large asteroids will pick up smaller bodies which then become moons.
