Cameras were filming the launch of the SpaceX rocket at Cape Canaveral in Florida, USA but the live feed of event was mysteriously pulled after at least three white objects were spotted, according to keen-eyed watchers who claim it was pulled deliberately.
The launch was successful but alien enthusiasts spotted something odd on the on-board cameras.
The video shows a part of the rocket with a backdrop of complete darkness.
Suddenly, in the top right of the shot appear four bright lights – moving at the same speed in similar positions.
After just a few seconds of showing the orbs, the feed is switched to an animated tracker of the rocket.
The UFO team known as SecureTeam10 investigated the footage after several people sent in the film and asked them to examine the film.
Secureteam’s Tyler Glockner said: “This was sent over to me on by at least 20 people who saw this and said ‘woah’.
“These are not stars and in no other part of this footage will you see stars.”
He added: “They immediately cut to this animated tracking system, for a few moments, almost as if they are giving it just enough time, for this UFO to move out of sight, before they immediately cut back to the fed of the rocket.
“You can clearly see we have a formation of three reflective objects – making up this triangular shape.”
The launch of the commercial satellite took place last Thursday (March 30) at the Kennedy Space Centre at 6.27pm local time.
Earlier this year Nasa’s live feed of the International Space Station was mysteriously cut after, as some claimed, “six large UFOs” flew past.
The launch of the satellite was a historic moment as it was the first successful launch of reusable booster rockets.
Historically rockets have fallen into the ocean after use, resulting in the loss of a machine costing tens to hundreds of millions of dollars to build.
