Followers of this thread, does this look valid:
Well, the story has definitely made the mainstream news today, as you can read here. However (and as was to be expected), NASA claims that it's just a reflection in the window of someone or something moving inside the space station.
Personally, I find it less important. There's enough footage out there already to confirm that Earth is being visited by extraterrestrials, and enough reason to believe that the military-industrial complexes of the world — or in any case, that of the United States of Acronyms — have gotten their hands on some of that technology.

Aragorn, have you considered that maybe most of what we are considering to be ExtraTerrestrials are actually IntraTerrestrials? Humans from a different time that have gone to the stars and now are returning only to find themselves unwelcome? Even threatened?
Thanks for your views BTW.

Well, I think it's possible that such earlier civilizations may have existed and may then have left Earth in the meantime. I also think that it's plausible that some of our visitors could be coming from alternate time lines, or even from one of the many potential futures of our current time line. We're probably also seeing visitors from realities with more dimensions than the ones we ourselves can perceive — a hyperspatial environment, if you will.
Does it all matter to me? No, not really. It's interesting, yes, but my primary concern is this world that we here all have to live in, and all the crap that's going on here. Even if there are hyperdimensional or extraterrestrial beings involved in the state of affairs as they are being rolled out here on Earth in present time, the one thing that we can be absolutely certain of is that there are also present-day terrestrial humans involved — politicians, corporations and aristocrats, but also sociopaths from less glamorous walks of life. Murderers are murderers. Pedophiles are pedophiles. Rapists are rapists. Whether ET is involved or not, we are to be held accountable for our own actions.
The bottom line is that, to me personally, this world is in enough trouble as it is already, and we need to sort out our own mess before we start looking to the heavens for what's out there. I prefer keeping both of my feet on the ground. It is here that I live, and it is here that things are messed up. That's what matters. We have to start taking care of our own brothers and sisters here on this rock in space. And until we do, all that's up there in the skies at night (or during the day) is just an interesting pass-time.
If we can't take care of our own kind and instead we keep on abusing each other — and everything else that lives on our planet — then we'd be a bona fide danger to whoever/whatever lives beyond our atmosphere at worst, and unworthy of their attention at best.
