A photograph tweeted by an astronaut aboard the International Space Station showing a mysterious object in the sky has ignited speculation among UFO hunters.

US astronaut Scott Kelly, who has been in space for 236 days, shared the picture captioning it "Day 233. Once upon a #star over Southern India. #GoodNight from @space_station! #YearInSpace."

In the upper right of the photo you can clearly see a large object with two lights on each end.

Its unusual content quickly caught the eye of alien believers, who feel the 51-year-old is "trying to tell the world about the existence of aliens".

YouTube channell Sonofmabarker posted a video discussing the possibility that the photo captured an alien craft flying across the sky.

"Last night aboard the Space Station astronaut Scott Kelly tweeted this photo.

"It also appears to be very large and constructed.

"I would find it hard to believe that Scott Kelly did not notice this when he tweeted this out.

"It really sticks out like a sore thumb.

"Scott Kelly thank you for sending this photo down to Earth.

"Hardly a week goes by without someone from the ISS sending us a photo or video that really is quite strange and it is left for us to decide."

Scott C Waring, editor of told the Express:

"When an astronaut tweets a photo of a UFO, you can bet people notice it.

"The UFO is about 25 meters long and 150 to 200 meters away.

"It looks like Scott was trying to hint at the existence of aliens. Message received Scott, and thanks."

However other space enthusiasts argue that the 'object' may simply be part of the ISS projecting out in front of the camera lens.

As usual, NASA will not comment on individual cases.

The debate continues!
