The internet just got freaked out by this astronaut’s picture of a ‘UFO’

Let's face it, we all want aliens to exist.

Even if it turns out that they're far more advanced than us and decide to kill us all to demonstrate their superiority, that's a chance we're willing to take, just in case they turn out to be awesome little green men who've come to spread love, peace and harmony from a far-flung corner of the universe.

And, as such, there's a whole load of people out there desperately searching for clues of the existence of extraterrestrial life.

They recently thought they'd hit the jackpot with this tweet from US astronaut Scott Kelly, who often sends out incredible shots from the International Space Station. However, this one, taken over India, is a photo with a difference - there's a bizarre glowing metallic shape in the top right hand corner.

Unsurprisingly, people got very excited.

Scott Waring, editor of ufosightingsdaily.com went further, writing on his blog: "When an astronaut tweets a photo of a UFO, you can bet people notice it... Scott Kelly likes to send out photos of the view from the windows of the space station… and they look cool. This one however has a cigar shaped glowing UFO with a metallic body in it. The UFO is about 25 meters long and 150-200 meters away. It looks like Scott was trying to hint at the existence of aliens. Message received Scott, and thanks."

However, it wasn't exactly proof, as explained by several seasoned space watchers, including Olivia D'Souza.

Ah well - the search for that proof will have to go on a little longer. Why won't they just make it really obvious? Come on guys, let's be friends.
