UFO seen monitoring ISS is PROOF aliens are watching Earth – shock claim | Weird | News

A glowing orb was seen moving in the distance from NASA’s ISS live feed which sent alien hunters into a frenzy. The ball of light had a red glow to it and theories ranged from being a secret US or Russian experiment to an alien spaceship. A member of the public first spotted the alleged craft and sent the video to UFO investigation team MUFON with an eyewitness statement saying: “I was watching live feed of the ISS and this red looking ball and this almost cloud looking light started appearing and it caught my attention.

“Then this red ball comes flying from what would be northeast.”

Images of the strange orb were quickly picked up by other alien hunters, and Scott C Waring, who runs the space conspiracy website UFO Sightings Daily, said this is proof aliens are watching us.

Mr Waring wrote on his blog: “This glowing orb was caught by an eyewitness who was watching the live Internet cam of the space station.

“The UFO is not a perfect circle, but lumpy and uneven. The dark centre could be a window or viewing area for the pilots on it.

“This isn’t the moon, because the moon is much larger, more clear and easy to make out.

“It could be a top secret military craft for the USA or Russia that comes near the orbit of the space station, but its shape is very odd, unlike most satellites.

“I would therefore conclude that it is very likely an alien craft investigating the space station.”

Conspiracy theorists often look for signs of extraterrestrial activity in official NASA video and live streams.

But scientists who have worked for the space agency in the past have a much simpler explanation for all of the bizarre UFO sightings reported.

According to former NASA engineer James Oberg, most UFO sightings are nothing more than “space dandruff” floating in front of cameras.

These specks of dandruff can be anything from bits of chipped paint drifting aimlessly in zero gravity, flakes of ice or ISS insulation that has broken off.

He said: “I’ve had enough experience with real spaceflight to realise that what’s being seen in many videos is nothing beyond the ‘norm’ from fully mundane phenomena occurring in unearthly settings.”

Mr Oberg argued the human brain is not wired to make sense of these tiny objects floating above Earth.

When Ontario declared a COVID-19 health emergency last spring, the first instinct of Ottawa entrepreneur Peter O’Blenis was to preserve cash.

“We basically stopped our discretionary spending,” said O’Blenis, the co-founder and CEO of Evidence Partners, which makes software for accelerating the review of scientific and medical literature, using artificial intelligence. “We cut investments in things meant to help us grow.”

It was a defensive posture born of experience. O’Blenis had 12 years earlier nearly been crushed by the global financial crisis. Another looked to be on the way.

In 2008, O’Blenis and his colleagues, Jonathan Barker and Ian Stefanison, hit a brick wall with their first venture, TrialStat, which helped hospitals manage patients’ electronic data. While TrialStat had secured $5.5 million in venture financing just a couple of years earlier, the founders had burned through most of it during a rapid expansion. When the financial world collapsed, so did their firm.

The trio played things far more conservatively with Evidence Partners, which has relied almost exclusively on customer revenues to finance expansion.

The caution proved unnecessary. Like so many other businesses, O’Blenis underestimated the government’s willingness to keep the economy afloat with easy money. Nor did he anticipate that COVID-19 would prove a significant catalyst for the firm’s revenues so soon.

Evidence Partners is hardly the only local firm with technology particularly suited for the war against COVID-19. Spartan Bioscience and DNA Genotek adapted existing products to create technology for identifying the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. Ottawa-based units of Abbott Laboratories and Siemens Healthineers make portable blood analyzers that diagnose patients afflicted by the virus.

Shepherds of Good Hope wants to expand ByWard Market operation with eight-storey housing complex

The Shepherds of Good Hope plans to build an eight-storey building near its current shelter for the homeless in the ByWard Market that would include supportive housing for up to 48 people, a soup kitchen and a drop-in centre.

The organization says it wants to be part of the solution to the housing crisis that has fuelled a rise in homelessness in Ottawa.

People would be moved out of the emergency shelters and into their own tiny apartments in the complex, which would include a communal dining hall and staff available to help with mental health, addiction and medical problems, said Caroline Cox, senior manager of communications for the Shepherds.

Some residents in the neighbourhood are opposed, saying services for the homeless and vulnerable should not be concentrated in one area of the city.

“I was flabbergasted,” said homeowner Brian Nolan, who lives one block from the development proposed for 216 Murray St., where currently a one-story building houses offices for the Shepherds of Good Hope.

Nolan said that, in the 15 years he’s lived in the area, it has become increasingly unsafe, with home and car thefts, drug dealing, loitering, aggressive and erratic behaviour, urinating, defecating and vomiting on sidewalks and yards and sexual acts conducted in public on his dead-end street. Before he lets his son play basketball in the yard, he checks the ground for needles and his home security camera to see who is nearby.

About the Speaker

Kern holds a PhD in Women’s Studies from York University. She is currently an associate professor of Geography and Environment and director of Women’s and Gender Studies at Mount Allison University.

Kern is the author of two books on gender and cities, including Feminist City: Claiming Space in a Man-Made World (Verso). The book discusses how our cities have failed in terms of fear, motherhood, friendship, activism, the joy and perils of being alone, and also imagines what they could become.

Kern argues, “The pandemic has shown us that society can be radically reorganized if necessary. Let’s carry that lesson into creating the non-sexist city.”
