NASA Debunks Mysterious Triangular 'UFO'

Alien conspiracy theorists are foiled by the laws of physics.

  • Alien watchers called attention to footage captured by a NASA telescope to prove the existence of aliens.
  • The YouTube video was quickly debunked.
  • The scientists note that Venus and the triangle, opposite each other across the middle of the camera plane, stay in step as they move.

Once again, alien conspiracy theorists have attempted to use publicly available NASA images to prove that the space agency must be engaging in an elaborate UFO cover-up. And, once again, they've been foiled by the laws of physics.
This time, they called attention to peculiar new footage captured by a telescope onboard NASA's STEREO-B spacecraft — one of a pair of probes parked on either side of the sun which, together, provide a 360-degree view of the inner solar system. The footage shows Venus, Earth and, on the opposite side of the field-of-view, a mysterious triangular object headed our way.
