Millennium Falcon spotted in live NASA footage

While the Millennium Falcon has remained resolutely absent in the latest Rogue One footage, it's cropped up in another altogether surprising location.

Earth's orbit.

No really - Jadon Beeson has the proof.

The 20-year-old was watching a live feed the International Space Station when, cresting over the horizon, was none other than Han Solo's run around. Take a look.

See it? That greyish-blue disk of light that could be lens flare, but COULD ALSO BE a Corellian light freighter?

"I was watching the live stream on my iPhone on Tuesday night," Beeson told the Mirror, "I popped away to see my neighbours and came back an hour later – I had left the stream on on my phone. I looked and realised there was a metal object above the earth. It had a blue glow to it and it stayed there for about two minutes… It was a metallic object, it looks like a Millennium Falcon from Star Wars or something from Close Encounters of the Third Kind. I thought it was all very strange."

He's sent the image to NASA in the hopes of getting an explanation of what the object might be - but he's not heard anything back yet. 

If you fancy making your own discovery like Beeson, you can watch the live feed from the ISS below. Carefully now - this kind of ships have been known to do the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs...
