MOSCOW, August 20 (RIA Novosti) – A NASA astronaut reported an unidentified flying object outside the International Space Station (ISS), which was later identified as an antenna shield from the ISS’ Russian module.

Astronaut Chris Cassidy recorded the object flying near the Progress cargo ship docked to the ISS and alerted ground controllers Monday.

The US space agency later posted a video of the floating "UFO" on YouTube.

Russian specialists later said in a text comment on the video that the object was a shield from one of the Zvezda module’s antennas.
