Conspiracy theorists claimed that NASA hid the existence of UFO with a piece of a duct tape.

A UFOlogist believed that an unidentified flying object has been spotted in archival footage of Apollo 7, the first manned Apollo mission that took astronauts into space and around the Earth.

He claimed that a large metallic UFO has been in close distance, less than 100 meters away, from the spacecraft, as seen in one of the Apollo 7 images.

“Look at the detail of the ship. It’s made by a species far more advanced than us and its design looks nothing like most of us would imagine it to be. It is beautiful,” the spaced-out blogger wrote.

However, the sighting of “aliens viewing human history being made” was concealed from the public when astronauts allegedly covered up a portion of the camera lens with a sticky tape, or what seems to be a “duct tape.”

While the UFO hunter certainly made his points regarding the odd sighting on the famous space mission, one commentor dubbed the tape as “nothing sinister.”

“The tape is nothing sinister,” wrote an anonymous commentor. “It is just the usual tape which holds the end of the film reel to the spool. I used to process film back in the 70’s and many brands used adhesive tape in this way.”
