Via the Guardian Liberty Voice, did Chiao see a UFO while at the International Space Station?
From October 2004 until April 2005, astronaut Leroy Chiao was flying high as commander of the International Space Station. While he and Russian cosmonaut Salizhan Sharipov were taking a stroll outside of the ISS something caught Chiao’s attention. The two were putting together navigational antennas 230 miles above the ground and flying at 17,000 miles an hour when something went by them, traveling even faster.
Chiao says that he saw some lights that he thought were in a line. When the lights flew by him, Chiao thought it was “…awfully strange.” Sharipov was looking the other way. Chiao’s experience is one of several stories that will be told on an upcoming program on the Science Channel.
As an astronaut, Chiao doesn’t believe an intelligently controlled craft from another planet has ever visited Earth [but says] “I have an open mind and I do believe there’s other life in the universe.”
