Skeptic News: Alien mothership or reflection?

From: Digital Journal

UFO hunters say that the International Space Station (ISS) is under surveillance by a “UFO mothership.” They allege they have observed in recent footage from ISS’s live camera, a giant UFO mothership hovering close to the space station.
Digital Journal reports recent claims of UFO sightings in images sent to Earth by NASA’s Curiosity rover exploring the planet Mars. But now we also have reports of UFO sightings from the International Space Station (ISS). According to UFO enthusiasts, a huge mothership in the process of ejecting smaller crafts was seen on NASA’s ISS live camera feed.According to Space.com, on September 11, a YouTube user, danielofdoriaa, posted footage from the ISS’s live camera feed, with the explanation that the streak of light visible in the footage is an “amazing UFO mothership letting out an orb fleet on ISS live feed” (see YouTube footage above).The Huffington Post also reports that on September 13, myunhauzen74, another UFO hunter, claimed that the ISS camera caught another UFO that appeared as a bright pulsating object.
According to the Examiner, UFO hunters have accused NASA of covering up evidence of the UFO seen hovering close to ISS on September 11, by switching cameras in their live streaming feed. According to danielofdoriaa, NASA officials simply switched to a different camera angle without offering explanations.
Well known “Ufologist,” Marc D’Antonio, chief photo and video analyst for Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), and who works for a company based in Connecticut that specializes in special effects, says the white lights in the footage are only reflections off the window of the ISS. According to Space.com, D’Antonio explained:

“Basically when you’re looking at any object, if there’s a window between you and the object, the window is always suspect. Your first move in trying to identify the object is to try to eliminate that it’s a reflection”
