Strange footage has emerged of bright lights flashing on the International Space Station's live feed، with conspiracy theorists claiming it is 'an uncloaking UFO'، Daily Mail reported.

The live feed caught the attention of UFO hunters after it appeared to be flashing near the ISS.

The conspiracy theorists who posted the video say whatever it is، it must be 'huge' as it was going under the ISS at some distance.

Other UFO hunters have claimed the mammoth alien craft could be 900 feet (300 metres) in diameter and fly from the Earth to the moon in less than a minute.

However، experts have debunked the claim، and say the lights are simply reflections or lens flare from the camera.

The video was posted by Belgium-based YouTube channel UFO Today and shows a live broadcast of the spaceship on the 14th April 2018.

'We can see the international space station orbiting earth when suddenly a UFO seems to be uncloaking nearby the international space station'، according to UFO Today.

The UFO hunters claimed that the Earth's magnetic field was interfering with the UFO as it revealed itself، causing the lights to flash.

It looks like the effect we see when a piece of aluminium is put inside a microwave.

'Whatever this object was، it must have been huge since it was going under the international space station at some distance'، the user posted with the live feed.

Another prominent UFO hunter Scott C Waring had his own theory about the footage.

He said it was not six separate UFOs but one large one that could be as large as 900 feet (300 metres) in diameter.

'This UFO is going to blow your mind! I mean it just shows up as a single glowing orb'، he wrote on his website UFO sightings daily.

Then it divides into about 4-6 flashing orbs! During this time the UFO is revealed partially، meaning its not 6 UFOs، but one large UFO of about 300 meters diameter'، he said.

'Such a craft has the capability to fly from Earth to the moon in under a minute. Its not light speed، but its fast'، he said.

However، Nigel Watson، author of the UFO Investigations Manual، said there was a simple explanation for these baffling lights.

'Often the images shown to be of UFOs near the ISS are reflections or lens flare from the camera'، he told MailOnline.

Usually people who post videos like this are more concerned about adding music to the soundtrack and putting ridiculous ideas about UFOs uncloaking themselves like a spaceship in Star Trek'، he said.
