Alien hunters are convinced this huge apparently disc-shaped UFO crossing the moon is yet more proof of extraterrestrial life.


Mystery surrounds the object which appeared from out of the blue as the Miami Observatory in Florida streamed a feed of the lunar surface on December 3.


The dark circle-shaped shadow is captured above the moon, sparking theories from a well-known UFO enthusiast that it is a craft created by an intelligent species.


Scott C. Waring, from UFOsightingsdaily.com, said: "It's not a man-made object, because there are not solar panel wings on it to gather energy.





"There are no antennas on it for transmitting, also the surface is not completely round, but has a rough edge to it.


"Looks like a bio-mechanically grown UFO." 


One poster on YouTube refuted claims that it was an alien spaceship or even an object.


They said: "After studying it is NOT an object.


"I have come to these conclusions after multiple re-plays effected, I have seen that it does not maintain the form.


"For me it is the outskirts of a shadow. If this is so it is very possible that the object crossed between the Moon and the Sun projecting the shadow."


Another user said: "Peekaboo UFO, they know we are watching."


This is not the first, and certainly won't be the last lunar-related UFO sighting or claims of an 'alien base' on the grey planet.





It was claimed last month that an “M-shaped” structure in NASA satellite photosis a base for extraterrestrials, while another weird object spotted in imagery from the space agency was dubbed an 'alien antenna' .


Footage also emerged recently of a mysterious UFO hurtling past the International Space Station as it orbits Earth — seconds before the live feed cuts out.

NASA’s new one-stop shop in California will allow research and development of new small spacecraft systems. Be it scientific instruments or exploration sensors, the tiny machines can help study the environment and contribute to space exploration.

The small spacecraft systems can vary in size from a postage-small, (under an ounce) or up to the size of refrigerator (about 400 pounds). The Small Spacecraft Systems Virtual Institute (S3VI), which is being established at the Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California, will leverage the growing small spacecraft community, according to the US space agency.

“NASA sees enormous benefits from investing in research and technology development in small spacecraft systems, such as propulsion, that will be essential in advancing the commercial space sector,” Steve Jurczyk, associate administrator for NASA’s Space

Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) said in a statement. “Over the past several years, NASA has increased the generation of new, innovative applications of small spacecraft, with several mission directorates using small spacecraft to meet their goals.”


The research and development hub will promote innovation, identify emerging technologies and bring together industry, academia, private companies and other government agencies under NASA’s umbrella.

A study by the Rand Corporation titled ‘The Cosmos on a Shoestring’ said that small spacecraft systems offered NASA a way to maintain scientifically viable programs within tighter budgets. Small spacecraft are cheaper because of the new miniature technologies, which enables the agency to spread out mission risk. Unlike large missions, which often take a long time, with the smaller craft the agency can remains responsive to earth- and space-science communities.

“Small spacecraft fulfill important roles in earth science, astrophysics, space physics, and planetary science,” stated NASA.

The agency’s Space Technology Group began in 2011 and is currently using small spacecraft for a range of activities, such as “earth and space science measurements to help understand our environment; investigations of microgravity effects on organisms to enable the safe exploration of space; and robotic precursors to maximize the productive use of space.”

“The S3VI will provide the first one-stop shop for technical knowledge in the rapidly burgeoning small spacecraft technology fields,” said Jay Bookbinder, director of programs and projects at Ames. “This will result in more efficient development efforts, and enable smaller vendors to compete more effectively in this market.”

The institute S3VI portal will go live in early 2017 and will capture data on spacecraft activities and lessons learned, and identify collaboration opportunities and points of contacts at NASA.
