Astronaut Scott Kelly's 'UFO' photo generates extraterrestrial buzz

The truth is out there … maybe. A photo tweeted by astronaut Scott Kelly is generating plenty of extraterrestrial buzz.

Kelly, who recently broke the U.S. record for most days in space, tweeted the picture taken from the International Space Station Sunday.

An apparent ‘object’ in the top right hand corner of the image has piqued the interest of UFO hunters such as sonofmabarker. “In the upper right of the photo you can clearly see a large object with two lights on each end. It also appears to be very large and constructed,” he wrote, in a post accompanying a YouTube video on the image.

In a blog post on the UFO Sightings Daily website, Scott Waring also weighed in on the image.  “Scott Kelly likes to send out photos of the view from the windows of the space station … and they look cool,” he wrote. “This one however has a cigar shaped glowing UFO with a metallic body in it.”

NASA has not yet responded to's request for comment.
