The object was seen flying near Jupiter in a diagonal manner not deviating from its path. The alleged UFO also appears to change luminance as it moves.
A giant Tatooine planet, 11 times larger than Earth with two suns, has been discovered. Kepler-1647b is a gaseous planet sitting in a habitable zone, which makes its surrounding moons possible areas for alien life.
Many don't know that aboard the solar-powered spacecraft are three aluminum lego mini figurines called "legonauts", as part of NASA and LEGOs Bricks in Space project.
